On a lark when I was rebuilding my network last weekend I put the
opendns servers in. First thing I did was typo a URL, and it popped up
an advertising page. Needless to say, I removed the entries immediately
and went back to my ISP defaults.
It's nice of them to strut around like they're the secure thing, but
then pull something as stupid and vile as wildcarding all unknown
queries to their ad pages?
When you posture DRM as a 'direct consumer benefit' you may as well
just be saying 'It's double plus good' as you strap the rat cage to
my face. - "parf" on Windows Vista's "content protection"
