No, you have not been clear. I gave the best answer I could to your 
vague question, with a caveat.

/worth it/possible/ ?

I don't know where you get this idea from. I see very few "defensive" or 
"hostile" posts on here. And of course this thread is about DNS, a 
server function.

I'm starting to regret answering you now. I don't recall the incident 
four and a half years ago, but I get the feeling that whoever told you 
to p**s off probably had a point.

New users are of course thoroughly welcome on here, and will be given as 
much help as others can provide. People who are given good advice and 
respond with abuse may experience a slightly harder time.
