What!?!  A web browser doesn't query DNS servers, it asks your TCP/IP
stack for such details, and *that* does the DNS queries.  It doesn't
matter what application (web browser, news agent, etc.), you're using,
none of them directly query DNS servers.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
