That’s a drastic overstatement. I believe what AJ007 is referring to is OpenNIC, which is a DNS service that provides custom and free domain registration using custom TLDs like .geek and .chan. It forwards existing TLDs to the root nameservers so that it’s interoperable with the current DNS system. It has its pros and cons- I used it for a few months without any major issues. It certainly doesn’t require building your own ISP to sidestep the current root nameservers.
Essentially the same problem as if people started picking random non-RFC1918 /8 IP space ranges and numbering their networks into them, or choosing their own arbitrary AS numbers.
> too rigid adherence to precedent may lead to injustice in a particular case and also unduly restrict the proper development of the law. [The Lords] propose therefore, to modify their present practice and, while treating former decisions of this house as normally binding, to depart from a previous decision when it appears right to do so.

Is this where you say "blockchain"?
Won't every domain name just be moved abroad if they can be held hostage on a whim from a third party?
I fail to see how a domain registrar having to do the same is worse.
I don't like the rulings much, but at least it is consistent.
Search engines at least have specific knowledge of the content they direct to, and might have a (partial) copy.
But registrars don't have any of this. They provide a service that is completely independent from any content being served, and the offending content never touches their infrastructure.
