    Is there perhaps an about.com/nytimes.com admin around? I was
    wondering if they perhaps knew that their loadbalancer for
    www.nytimes.com is fairly broken wrt answering AAAA queries:

    (who's NS for nytimes.com)
    dig NS nytimes.com +short

    (who do they think is the NS for www.nytimes.com)
    dig www.nytimes.com @ns1t.nytimes.com. NS
    ;www.nytimes.com. IN NS

    www.nytimes.com. 60 IN NS nss1.sea1.nytimes.com.
    www.nytimes.com. 60 IN NS nss1.lga2.nytimes.com.

    (what is the AAAA for www.nytimes.com ?? )
    dig www.nytimes.com @nss1.sea1.nytimes.com. AAAA
    ;www.nytimes.com. IN AAAA

    . 3600000 IN NS k.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS l.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS m.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS a.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS b.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS c.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS d.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS e.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS f.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS g.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS h.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS i.root-servers.net.
    . 3600000 IN NS j.root-servers.net.

    k.root-servers.net. 3600000 IN A
    l.root-servers.net. 3600000 IN A
    m.root-servers.net. 3600000 IN A

    wha??? <ricky voice>Lucy, your loadbalancer is foobar'd</ricky voice>

    In an effort to make v6 things work a tad better in this hostile
    world, could the NYTimes folks let us know what sort of LB that is?
    and why it wants to not be a good Intenet Citizen??
