EarthLink Establishes Their Own "Site Finder"

toppk Found a work around for linux (241 comments)

I will no longer consider earthlink non-evil, and will move off as soon as convinient.

If you have fedora linux, you can run this:

echo SEARCH=earthlink.sux > /etc/dhclient-up-hooks && chmod a+x /etc/dhclient-up-hooks

This will update resolv.conf with a overridden "seach" and apparently this will get a the dns servers to return NXdomain. Apparently they only fake results when it goes to things like *.com * and * I personnaly think that should sue someone.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
