how was I wrong ? how was I to know my ISP does not resolve dyndns TLD's
Because if you were "smart" enough to setup a DNS entry you should have checked that entry "some how". I don't mean wrong like "Ooooooo your gonna burn in hell" wrong, I mean your "100%" to blame and it should be on you to fix (i.e. by researching and choosing better DNS servers or by choosing a "better" way to handle Dynamic DNS hosting.
I agree with the privacy concerns , and opendns did not live up to that standard . you go and check about opennic before you throw statements like "Opinion, not fact" .
http://www.opennicproject.org/ was established with privacy concerns on mind .
Good is an opinion, it's your view on if they are doing a good job or not. Even if it's a widely held opinion, it's still just opinion (and not fact). Thus it will NEVER EVER be 100% accepted.
but here's an opinion , your dissection of my post is exactly the FUD clem was referring to
I can not say what clem was referring to but my post is not FUD. I clearly stated my points, I did not (intentionally) leave anything unclear, nor did I sew doubt or fear in any way.
Each line was pointed, to the point, and stated clearly what I meant without using ambiguous terms. The only line that even leaves any "doubt" at all is the last. And it is opinion. Send my data without my active consent, in any way shape or form, and is wrong, immoral (in my opinion) and possibly illegal.
If your referring to "possibly illegal", that's just what it is. There are laws that say (in the US, EU and UK) that state clearly, that you can not send a persons private data, without their consent. Each governing body words it a bit differently, but they all have laws to that effect. The only reason I say "possibly illegal" is because I don't know if "Linux Mint" could be held responsible, or if the liability would fall to the editor of the file, or the creator of the installer or what. In truth there have only been a handful of cases in situations like this, Usually at the ISP level.
So just to restate, my post was pointed, on topic, and in my opinion, not fear mongering, sewing uncertainty, or raising doubt. Don't claim something is FUD just because you don't agree.
