Just recently in NYC, the hotel "internet" connection did intercept
any UDP traffic to *:53, redirecting it to their resolver. Which did
not only serve their own A records for names that should have returned
NXDOMAIN, but also returned "better" answers than you normally would
get (requesting pages from www.weather.com delivered pages from www.accuweather.com
). Of course it even did that after I had paid and clicked through
their walled garden site.
