Yes, people also jump out of perfectly good airplanes... we can't fix
all the things :(
my point really is you assume some risk when you do odd things with
basic plumbing on the internet, if you don't actually know what you
are doing you're going to get burned.

Quoted from Wikipedia:
"Dangers of Use[edit]
The dangers of using an unknown IP as a Smart DNS are similar to any
other rogue DNS server preforming DNS hijacking in that the user is
not aware which parts of his traffic are redirect and intercepted."
