Yet another Quadruple DNS?

I believe that centralized DNS resolvers such as are of
benefit to those folks who can't run their own recursive resolver
because of OS, hardware, or skill limitations, and yet do not trust
the ones provided by their ISPs.

I use for my home desktop to avoid the interception of my
DNS queries by my cable company.  I'd very much rather get an
NXDOMAIN than a connection to some web server that wants to offer
me a "helpful" web page, even when I'm running a non-web client
like ssh or 'dig'.

And I'd really like not to enrich my ISP's trove of information about
my browsing habits by them recording all my DNS lookups.  Of course, could be collecting that information, but they're in less
of a position to insert ads than my cableco is.
