I suppose that makes sense, but you have to trust at least one group with it. No matter how far you push your own DNS setups, something has to make the queries and those queries are going to be sent through an ISP. If you set up your own resolver, then you can still be tracked based on its queries. The benefit of using someone else's resolver is that, as long as you trust them not to spy, nobody who watches their traffic knows what you're doing because your data is mixed in with everyone else's. So if you don't trust them, do you have someone you do?
