If you're running a local LAN, it makes a lot of sense to run an
instance of BIND9, so that you're, on the one hand, heading to the
True Authorities (e.g. - the 13 root servers), and then cacheing
requests.  djbdns may also be an option.

There's some complexity to configuring your own zones, but using it
for cacheing isn't rocket surgery.

That way, any such nonsense can't possibly affect you.
