NIC host considered hero

Folks,

In response to some UDP Domain Request packets directed to sri-nic.arpa,
I am observing ICMP Source Quench messages from sri-nic.arpa in return.
I assume sri-nic.arpa is full-up with domain requests and is asking
us all to notch back a few decibels. Not many hosts are capable of
such wonderful and intricate response and the implementors are to
be congratulated. The lesson here may be that UDP namecallers should
start thinking about responding to such things, not just TCP clients
which ratchet down on window size.
