Ok so repointing is not ideal in a lot of circumstances but "evil" ?
If I simply had a redirect perl script on a dedicated server that was

If I have a server mydomain.com which is an authoritative name server
for mydomain.com and it holds a CNAME record for errorcom.mydomain.com
which points to errorcom.com is that "evil". What is this evil
business about? "It's over here" is what the net is built upon!
Obviously no-one wants to be errorcom.censorthis.net or even plain
censorthis.net so I'm just going to stop now (God I HAVE to get a
dedicated server for myself, anyone have any recommendations, my favs so
far are cihost.com and host2own.com)!
