DNS poisoning does not affect IP-level routing.

When we had one report of this problem in #sword last week -- traceroute
from South Africa going dead in Phoenix -- I tried a traceroute back to
that same address from crosswire.org, and the trace went dead in 2 hops,
still in Phoenix.

It's a problem with routing that's occurring very close to crosswire.org.

Someone with official status regarding crosswire.org's hosting (Troy)
needs to file a trouble ticket with the ISP.
