Re: Sitefinder II, the sequel...

Also, sitefinder created a wildcard DNS record where none existed before, breaking all kinds of applications in the process, openDNS doesn't do this.
I stand corrected, however this is not as big a deal as when sitefinder did it because as we've both observed, this is voluntary. If using this breaks your application, don't have your application use it, with sitefinder you didn't have the choice.
For it's target market: end user DNS resolution, the side effects will be minimal if anything.
I don't consider this a different view of the global namespace. If they decide to add ORSC root glue or New.net domains then it'll be a different view of the global namespace. Hopefully they wouldn't be that reckless.
They way we run our applications doesn't lend itself to using it (it's that choice thing again), but I've got a few workstations using it and one of my laptops. It's also a handy offsite resolver to use to check DNS settings from outside our own cloud.
We also get asked our members if there is a viable resolver they can use and we'll be happy to recommend this.
