A Twitter status update caught my eye earlier:

Obviously curious, I followed the link to BSRPDNSC and tried a query. The calculator works, but look at the associated TXT resource record:

$ dig 1.2.+.rp.secret-wg.org txt

1.2.+.rp.secret-wg.org. 10 IN TXT "3"
1.2.+.rp.secret-wg.org. 10 IN TXT "This DNS message (including the RR(s) in the

   with us using DNS." "If received in error, please notify us immediately and
   delete the DNS message (and any of its sections) from any computer or any

A disclaimer in the DNS. That made my day! ;-)
