    Wtf? Blackhole-1.iana.org
    I found a numeric IP addy referenced as a unique in one of my trackers and was curious about it so I looked it up. According to whois it's "BLACKHOLE-1.IANA.ORG"

    Blackhole? IANA?

    Does anyone know what this might be about? Coz I've always been good and I'm never, ever bad.

    Should I alert my web host?

    Am I being ridiculous? (We all know THAT never happens.)

    Thanks Trust. I visited the IANA web site but hadn't found the FAQs.

    What a relief!
