[thelist] 404 a Whole Sub-Domain

Whilst being paranoid is a good thing, I don't see how (1) affects your situation.
Whilst IP addresses can be spoofed, the sending of a packet with a spoofed IP address will never get a response from your server (because the server will send the response back to the spoofed source IP, not the sender's actual IP address). So what use is a spoofed IP address? It can be used to send a one-packet payload that might compromise your server, or it can be used to cause a DoS attack by opening TCP connections that the server isn't going to timeout quickly enough, or if the attacker can also hack routers, they may be able to have a response routed back to them (not usually an issue on the public internet).

1) Because IP's can be and are spoofed.
2) Because I'm paranoid. :-)
Basically the parking page confirms that a site exists at that address
even though I have
in .htaccess. The welcome.conf on Redhat is has priority over .htaccess
for no default index. I want to override that.
