Just a quick question, I have a large number of IP blocks with a specific provider (who will remain nameless), do you think it's fair to charge £5 per block for Reverse DNS delegation?
Personally I'm appauled and have just gone crazy down the phone with the person that told me I had to pay for it. What's your opinion on this?

I am not appalled but surprised. There is work one time and ongoing costs for maintaining any service but I would think it would be wrapped into their service given that if you have large blocks with them, you must have quite a bit of business with them.
It doesnt seem to be a lot though. is taht one time or monthly per block?
Can't we all just get along
Well it depends how much you will be paying? Whats in 'a block'. Well if its one-time and a low overall cost it can be reasonable.
Theres lots of record changing etc for setting up RDNS, why should they give it to you free?
Someone has to do the work.
You can delegate RDNS by putting one line in the zone file. They should charge you for delegating it, but maybe for the IPs themselves.
