[GRLUG] hosts.allow

I have a shiny new CentOS machine, and my hosts stuff is acting odd.

I have ALL:ALL in hosts.deny, and that works wonderfully when that's all I 

Then in hosts.allow I put in this: ALL : localhost : allow
and it still works

But as soon as I add this:

ALL : .wcsg.org

It's wide open to everyone.  I tried messing with spacing, being specific 
about the service I wanted to allow (ssh) etc.

There's SOMETHING about my syntax that's messing it up.

Any ideas?
