Reverse DNS look for my static IP

I've just realised that the reverse DNS lookup for my static IP (lookup of my IP Address in DNS) reveals my plusnet username! It is basically <myusername>.plus.net
This is unacceptable! I dont want my username revealed to would be hackers, it is a security risk
How do I get this removed or at least changed?

Hi sukeshn,
I can change it so that it has your IP address if you'd prefer?

No problem. I've submitted that for you, that should take effect within the next 4 hours.
