comment Is there any standard for DNS <-> IP authentication?
@mihai All good. Sorry for the teasing. We get a bit rough here, which isn't an excuse, but I think we mostly mean well. Stick around. And go ahead and try to build out what you're thinking. Nothing like dirty hands to teach a subject. =)

comment Is it generally a bad idea to run MongoDB and ElasticSerach on the same nodes
@JamesWahlin Definitely something to consider. The hosts I work with have 100,000+ IOPS r/w sustained, so it simplifies architecture with brute force power, but isn't exactly clever. =)

Tell you what @mihai, you make this as an open source project and see what the infosec community at large says about the concept.

But this is almost certainly the wrong solution to the actual problem you're trying to solve. Allowing the word "almost" in that sentence was very polite of you. =)

So confuse. Such misguide. Overengineer. Wow.

comment MX or A record issues
Is there an RFC or otherwise a standard that makes this a requirement? I'm curious about my assumptions. I mean, I'm sure it does block a lot of spam, but it's still illogical and silly. Blocking one service based on another virtually unrelated service's or host's unavailability, regardless of outcome, is broken. There's no actual need to have an A record at the apex of a sending domain for mail to be receieved. There are better standards-based ways of blocking spam. It's just a silly hack that certainly works, but is still a hack... unless I'm standards deficient, which is very likely. =)

comment MX or A record issues
Can you explain the "required" part with regard to point #1? Is that requirement just observational and experiential, which is still valid to bring up, or are they actually RFC and standards based requirements? Not to split hairs, but #3 isn't specifically "required" but just very good practice to make sure your mail isn't rejected. AFAIK #2 is the only thing that could be said to be absolutely required.

Tags were kinda silly. Also, cleaned up grammar and formatting a little bit while I was at it. YOU'RE WELCOME.
