it's a bit perjorative to say 'lazy' isn't it? what if your ISP does
monkey business with nxdomain or other requests? would you like it
better if people used opendns? or (a non-sla service from a
fourth party...)

I'm a fan of my own resolver, but not everyone has a dns resolver in
they back pocket, right?
