  (a) I don't control the actual registrar records

  (b) Yes, these were listed in the zone itself as the NS, but noone
should be doing lookups via these servers, because ZoneEdit is not
authoritative for the NS records of this zone, the registrar is.

I've removed them, but I politely request that you stop being an
asshole unless you want to wear this hat yourself.

I'm sick, I was stranded in the middle of nowhere when this change
took place, and I was rushed.

It's all of our fault.  Don't make me come over there.

ZoneEdit apparently does not run BIND, or at least does not send
NOTIFY requests.

I don't know what you want me to do.

You don't understand because you're an idiot, Jens, and you've never
guaranteed 100% uptime.

I was basically shut up by your whining when I tried to explain all of
the precautions we should take in order to avoid what happened to
zope.org this week.

I won't respond to demands that I rush ever again.
