It appears from my logs back as far as August 7, 2007, all I get is
SERVFAIL, certainly today there is no routing path to either
64.68.10.10 or 64.68.11.11 from my network.  So is completewhois.com
being DDoSed?  Do they just have pathologically bad connections
with parts of the internet?  Should this rule just be dropped from
whatever distributes it to me automatically (spamassassin.org,
and SARE from openprotect)?  Are there routing problems that can
be fixed?

I average one request per two seconds to there, it appears, and they
all fail, so I'm inclined to think I could do without them.  They
just generate ICMP time-to-live exceeded responses.
