84.93.235.210 and 84.93.235.226 wrong rDNS

The reverse DNS lookup for 84.93.235.210 and 84.93.235.226 make them look like broadband customers:
[tt]$ dig @212.159.6.10 -x 84.93.235.210 +short
84.93.235.210.broadband.plus.dyn.plus.net.
$ dig @212.159.6.9 -x 84.93.235.226 +short
84.93.235.226.broadband.plus.dyn.plus.net.[/tt]
These IPs are actually community01.servers.plus.net and community02.servers.plus.net.

Re: 84.93.235.210 and 84.93.235.226 wrong rDNS

Apologies for bumping an old thread, but Kelly mentioned this to me the other day (presumably in response to some discussion elsewhere).
Should now look a tad more sensible:
~$ host 84.93.235.210
210.235.93.84.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer community01.servers.plus.net.
~$ host 84.93.235.226
226.235.93.84.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer community02.servers.plus.net.

Hardly a bump Bob, very relevant, and thanks as well.
