why not do a simple redirect of all DNS queries to an FBI hosted site
That would've been my approach from the beginning.
I would've made all internet requests that hit those DNS servers redirect them all to a page telling them they're infected and it needs to get fixed, basically no internet except the site to fix the problem. Makes more sense than just plunging them into internet darkness which doesn't help anyone and will needlessly cause a huge high volume tech support nightmare for the ISPs come Monday.
Doesn't seem like the ISPs care or they'd be doing something about it, perhaps intercepting requests to those DNS servers and redirecting to their DNS servers.
Sometimes I guess it's easier to just let nature take it's course and the infected will learn the hard way what happens when you don't secure your gear.
