I don't think I've ever seen a DNS outage caused by problems with BIND.
Caused by badly configured software, yes. Caused by router problems,
more frequently. Caused by politics, most frequently.
"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
