No. When he claimed that Bind always drops 4% of requests and that they
could prove they answer 100% of requests my brain shut down and was no
longer interested.

He seemed to have no grasp of how their product actually worked and why it
might be superior to a single Bind server and just attempted to scare me
into needing their service out of fear.

So I got rid of him as politely as possible.
