I'm not sure how to feel about that. In this case it's good, but imagine if Google started doing that to 8.8.8.8 (and they would definitely do it to 8.8.8.8 and not some alternate address). Google's editorial control over the Internet would be even more enhanced.

You can use it or not. They've got one for parental control and one for parental control + malware.


Maybe there's an interesting service to be had - a comparative DNS system....
Or maybe it's time for caching DNS to die.

Public DNS with parental controls or anti-malware controls are not exactly new. OpenDNS has been offering that for years already.

OpenDNS charges for that service, though. And they provide all sorts of lovely "logs" to the administrator so that you can doxx your users when they stray off the ranch.

I know they have paid plans, but they also had a free tier with parental controls at least. Or they used to have it.

Well I'm back to running my own caching DNS server on my main computer. No third-party anything, straight to the root servers, and I can decide which domains to block.

In other news, CenturyLink borked their BGP, yesterday morning, and broke a significant part of the internet, worldwide, for about 6 hours.

That's ok, they changed their name from CenturyLink to "Lumen".

Now "Lumen" can say they've never had any worldwide outages.
