In the spirit of Spring Cleaning and the shut-in effect of the quarantine kicking in hard, I decided to do a few things.
It started off with cleaning out the air conditioner (spoiler : never do this) and it ended with a plan on securing up my domains.
mmn.on.ca since the late 90s, spammers do try and forge the domain. Granted since 2018 I've had the DMARC policy set to
quarantine (lol) and it seemed to have helped from seeing the DMARC reports but with all this COVID-19 SPAM I decided to do my part to prevent bullshit from propagating (and no, no matter what Karen from YouTube says, 5G does not propagate or cause COVID-19.)
I have my next set of core domains to be set to the
reject policy very soon.
mmn.on.ca has a pretty good score on deliverability on internet.nl at 87% (not having IPv6 mail servers does kick you down a bit, and ProtonMail hasn't yet phased out some of the older TLS stock.
Previously I wasn't able to have DNSSEC with my previous and long time registrar MyID.ca so I had to move it to a new one not long ago so I could implement that. I've also got to reimplement HSTS, but that's a job for another day.
What wonderful news, I can hear my inner 17-year-old self say. After losing my personal domain nrg-online.ca back in the early 2000s to the horrid Michael “Mikey” Yack from FerberleursSabings.com I managed to get it back.
Granted it took many years, but it's the principle of it all. What do I plan on doing with it ? No idea, maybe make a homage to how much I detest Mikey Yack, but I already did that for a while on mmn.on.ca.
Let's see all the old accounts I still have attached to my old email address now...
I still hate this guy, back when I was in school I ran a personal website when it was kind of cool. And I got to a point where I could no longer afford the registration of my domain nrg-online.ca.
Well, Mikey Yack attacked and hoarded it for many years. In fact, much like China, I outwaited that prick and I have it back now.
Ever since then, I can't stand domain douches like that. Yeah nobody is going to pay 15k for myawesomenamelol1236356462.com. Get real.
