Owing to its nature as a hierarchical inverted tree, the DNS system is problematic in that it imposes a pseudo-scientific hegemony based on culturally unfounded technological determinism which constrains the labeling narratives for disadvantaged classes of people and devices.
DNS names, web addresses, Qtypes and Class Values are social constructs, those who initially formalized them via RFC authorship can garner unfair advantage over later participants who must follow arbitrary standards lest they endure marginalization and exclusion.
After extensive consultations with stakeholders, including disaffected groups and under-recognized normativities , easyDNS convened a committee toward a Fairness Memorandum and Learning (“FML”) to address systemic oppression in naming post-structuralism and neo-classical addressing deficiencies, with scope not limited to: discrimination, exploitation, hypersensitivity, hypermoralization, unequal outcomes and fragility.
The FML concluded that historical asymmetries would be attenuated through implementation of a tiered pricing structure that rectifies intersectional inequity.
By providing discounts on domains and DNS services for the historically disadvantaged, while charging additional premiums on same services to members of classes benefiting from unearned advantage and privilege, coerced assimilation into predefined technological constructs can be ameliorated.
The new social justice pricing structure is active immediately with retroactive effect.
To view pricing, please review the pricing matrix in section 2A:
(Important: locate your pricing quadrant according to your personally identified class attribution and not your assigned markers)

Happy April Fool’s Day!
Should have seen it at Fairness Memorandum and Learning… Cheers Mark
I have come to grips with my privilege and forthwith will endeavor to recognize and acknowledge my historical part and will further endeavor to correct imbalances in every sphere that I participate in.
Never gona give you up! Surely this is a “you have been rick rolled joke!” but I dont get it!
Oh Never mind! – I get it now! DOH! Silly me!
easyDNS: Social Justice Pricing Goes Into Effect Today? What, Where, Why….nice video BUT where is the pricing index?
Michael Armata says
Brilliant! Thank you, you made my week.
Rob Brunk says
Love the satire. Nice one for April Fool’s Day. 🙂
Your views on tech, government, big business, etc. closely match that of my own. If our paths ever cross, I think I could help you and your company! I’m also a customer of yours!

Good one, almost fell for it until i saw date lol.
Um, “it’s” should be spelled “its” in the first line of this message.

Also, I was socially constructed to be the #1 Rick fan. So that puts me in the lowest paying quadrant, as you should know.
Believe it or not, I grew up on the internet, and this is the first time I’ve gotten rickrolled.

I’m a Person of Stupor, what’s my discount?

Eh ! Pure Sir Humphrey Appleby of ‘Yes Prime Minister’ at his very finest ‘Newspeak’ – well done 🙂

p.s. – just in case this declaration is for real – KISS MY ASS – just sayin’ :0
As a white male baby boomer who has been required to expand my worldview to include diversity such as women, minorities, LGBTQ, and liberals, let me just say that I appreciate the effort you are finally making to accommodate my fragility.
Wait! What? Is that not what you meant??!
Thanks Mark. You brightened up my day. I usually watch Gad Saad or Rex Murphy to get a good dose of satirical humour but I think you’ve matched them with this post. Keep it coming.

Satisfying Satire – Wonderful Work (just like what I have come to expect from EDNS) but whre is the pricing index?
Love it! The more we make fun of SJW the longer we will stave off the end of the free civilized world.
We have received complaints. Due to increased insensitivity towards SJW’s core principles April Fool’s shall be declared illegal by fiat.

I identify as a member of the historically disadvantaged. I await my discount and retroactive credit. What is the ETA for hell freezing over?
Very happy to see our DNS provider finally addressing the inequity inherent in internet infrastructure!
Though I gave up social justice for Lent, I plan to take advantage of the new pricing after Easyster Sunday.

I SAW this coming. Really, I did. Of all days.

re: the ass comment, looks like that’s what I am. Sorry, I was trying to be funny. My wife says if I think I’m gonna say something funny, don’t say anything. She’s usually right about that. 🙁
R P says
It wasn’t that bad… Mark has heard, and said, worse! That being said, wives are always right.
Rick A. says
It’s been a month and a half and the pricing table still isn’t working =/
At least there’s a great video there for me to watch.
