Hmm, yes.  That's readly apparent from the error message "nameserver not
responding".  Anyone that has any technical experience with DNS knows this
to be almost always a transient problem due to network path issues.

True.  It could easly happen due to transient connectivity problems in the
path from Jidanni to c3sl, and it could well have happened close to c3sl.

However, the language used was agravating and insulting.  It is no surprise
it aggravated people.
