As previously replied to you, and with the standing that you are unaware of the
nameservers being used, the fact is that whether a nameserver makes multiple
requests or not, the result should never, ever, be that a domain is trusted
when you have no proof of it being so.

Your organisation is also of no standing to determine which nameservers are
abusive as the lookups could very well be legitimate in their requests, as are
those that have been made in this instance. Even so, to return a 'trusted'
response for any and all lookups if ludicrous. This defeats the whole purpose
of your 'service'.

I have never heard of anything similar - ever.

Your comments have been forwarded to the appropriate departments.

Kind regards.

No, but if all your requests get a hi that is a strong indicator that you are
using an abusive nameservers as reported in

No, not any any nameserver *not* on your subscription list will return a 'true'
for any lookup, see also the announcement above.
