I often use other ISP's DNS servers for testing if the ISP i'm using has DNS issues which can happen alot as they are quite the honeypot. I could see this being helpful for DDOS mitigation and or filtering of malware whilst also giving google the advantage of having the most up to date DNS servers. I wont be using it , opendns is annoying enough and any DNS server that returns anything other than no result for a domain that doesn't exist is broken and bad for the internet. Toodle-pip Amias
