  • This bug has been fixed. So, [tag: status-completed]? Commented Feb 19, 2014 at 12:55
  • So how come, in order for me to make a comment, it wants me to log in to Stack Exchange, where I always fail to log in successfully, after I got there from the link above, while logged in on ELU.meta? Nuts. It would be nice, but it's not to be, apparently. Commented Mar 8, 2014 at 18:41

It wasn't just ELU, but has now been fixed:

This was an issue with the SOA and A records being cached really hard on some DNS servers for a day. We never had a TTL higher than 5 minutes on the A and no higher than an hour on the SOA at any point, so we're at a loss to explain why some downstream DNS servers chose to cache for a full day.

The records in question are fixed now, but if you had this issue then beware your DNS server. It, or an upstream server, is not configured properly.
