@drwho I would join the IRC channel and ping Shdwdrgn if I were you.

@andyhoyland you definitely can’t break anything 😄 let me know if you have any questions.

Your DNS queries should not be for sale. It's shameful that Mozilla is doing this while pretending it's in the public's interest. Cloudflare already has a huge control on the authoritative DNS space, they don't need control of the rest.


Firefox admits they will eventually be sending all of your DNS to Cloudflare. Cloudflare will monetize your internet browsing, no matter how much their PR people say they are.

If you want to disable that, go to "about:config", and set "network.trr.mode" to 5.

The values are: 0 - default off, 1 - race, 2 TRR first, 3 TRR only, 4 shadow, 5 off by choice

The internet has become too controlled by a single entity (ICANN), threatening our ability to truly control our content online.

OpenNIC wants to make user-controlled Top-Level Domains, and a more democratic DNS system overall. Learn more about our project at opennic.org/ 😁

Looking to build an website? I just launched a service that allows anyone to create a WordPress blog instantly on the network. Check it out! http://blog.o/

You'll need to be on the @opennic network to access, read more at opennic.org/ 😄

You can now claim domains on the ".o" OpenNIC top-level domain: github.com/moderntld/.o 😍

It’s difficult to exaggerate the damage that has been caused to the original vision of the web through the commercialisation of domain names. Imposing artificial scarcity and the complexity of commerce systems on a fundamental identifier makes it orders of magnitude harder to self host. Domain names should be a public good. We should embrace opennic.org/ in the EU and mandate that all browser vendors implement support and get Let’s Encrypt to provide TLS support.
