The new Google DNS competitor "" sounds cool and all but I wouldn't use any DNS service that censors my queries.
Today it's malware, tomorrow it's CP and terrorism and then it's politically critical websites or whatever.

I am using my own resolver btw. Has the added benefit that I can verify DNSsec locally. 😉

@lx is that to say you're running your own DNS server? How long do you cache entries?

@gnuself Yes, actually not just a resolver but also an authoritative one (hidden master) for my domains. 😎
I cache them as long as the admins of the domains I resolve require in their TTL. But I think I put a max of 24h which I think is line with that the specifications say.

@lx I'm using #OpenNic.
An open and democratic #DNS
(I don't know how the decision model is working)

''We are a non profit organization and do not charge money for access to our DNS services, including the proposal/request of new TLDs. Free to use, and completely operated by volunteers, so there’s no financial pressure to corrupt our organization. New volunteers welcome!''

@lx wtf do you like cp or some shit? that shit should be off the net, I don't care what you say

everything else I understand

@mistermantas I didn't say that I agree with people who publish things like that, but you can't have one law for some people and another one for the rest. The internet should be free and unbiased. Some things are okay in one country and forbidden in another one. What are you going to do then?

@lx if I were you, I'd go by the law I think respects human rights. and shame those who don't obey it

nacis are like whatever they're dumb i don't care but cp is just... no.

@mistermantas Sure, I agree. But once you start blocking and banning things, chances are great that it will go out of hand and we'll end up with a "great firewall".

@mistermantas Apart from that, i don't think that you can find CP on the clearnet anyways

@lx it's the worst example you could've used because I'd strongly be against that but pretty much nothing else. freedom's great y'all

@mistermantas It just shows that at first "everyone agrees" but then the interests separate. And who determines where the line should be drawn? So I prefer going after those bad things, everyone agrees on, in different ways that will not lock us all out.
