you know that thread about google chrome sending too many DNS lookups?
it seems that might be almost against a domain registry agreement if they were somehow using a specific domain name to do it
(i wonder if the .google registrar terms omit this block or not.)
these lookups were of course not sent by a domain name or anything that would fall under this 'don't send spam email using our domain registry' section, they're just coming from a browser.
i just find it funny (?) google established its own whole tld and is also doing things other tlds, possibly even its own, ban in their registry agreements
