I've been asserting to folks in the political community that
nameservers like these will get a big boost in audience from bills
like the protect-IP in the US where ISPs are compelled to mute certain
domains for p2p or counterfeiting.  'Consumers' of the muted sites
will seek workarounds and will likely install some plugin or enter in
replacement nameservers that they're provided on IRC or other means.

Those of you on list who signed the letter from the technical
community about the problematic and disruptive nature of the
protect-ip act, THANK YOU, and please leverage this incident as
support for how such legislation would/could be more harmful than
