> ... private data to a centralized provider with questionable ethics

What, like your ISP?




Not everybody lives in the US. I trust my ISP. They are cool, and their handling of my data is regulated under the GDPR and other laws. CloudFlare? Not so much.


I am also not in the US. However, everywhere I look I see large ISPs with questionable ethics who are centralized providers of DNS.

I'm struggling to see why DoH means "is even more of your private data to a centralized provider with questionable ethics", which is what the OP said.


Mozilla is rolling this out in the US, where there are few ISPs across the nation.


Rather than putting real effort into this, I'm just going to say that Paul Vixie, the creator of DNS, advocates for using a local resolver (not your ISP's resolver), and DNSSEC. The internet is supposed to be decentralized, not centralized.

Cloudflare, Google, and all of these other centralized dns/ntp services are hazardous to our health.

I'm sure you're very knowledgable, but if Paul gives DNS advice, listen to him.


> Rather than putting real effort into this

Ah, you're too busy to make the case. Aren't we all.

> DNSSEC. The internet is supposed to be decentralized, not centralized.

DNSSEC centralises the DNS system with governments.

> Cloudflare, Google, and all of these other centralized dns/ntp services are hazardous to our health.

Saying it doesn't make it so.

> I'm sure you're very knowledgable, but if Paul gives DNS advice, listen to him.

I'm familiar with Paul's view. Given that most people can't or won't run a local resolver, how does it help?

> Really kid.

Lol.

> https://encrypted-dns.org .. setup dns correctly, teach your friends and colleagues to do it

Gosh, I had no idea it was this simple. Let me get onto the job of teaching the entire world something immediately! We should also tell all the folks at the IETF and the EFF that we've solved the privacy problem!

> Google is the bad guy, and Cloudflare is on their way to that realm

Repeating this still doesn't make it so.


Excellent. Now tell me, what is your financial situation? This property is a prime piece of New York manhattan, bridging New York's best burroughs. It has several rooms, some hidden doors which the kids will love, and you can't beat the commute. You can walk to either Manhattan or Brooklyn in 20 minutes. It even has beach front access and a diving board!

Now tell me your financial status and your credit rating. Actually, I'll just ask Google, they already know.
