I am running dnscrypt-proxy with the following in my dnscrypt-proxy.toml:

Code:
   [sources.'opennic']
   urls = ['https://raw.githubusercontent.com/DNSCrypt/dnscrypt-resolvers/master/v2/opennic.md', 'https://download.dnscrypt.info/resolvers-list/v2/opennic.md']
   minisign_key = 'RWQf6LRCGA9i53mlYecO4IzT51TGPpvWucNSCh1CBM0QTaLn73Y7GFO3'
   cache_file = 'opennic.md'

What's concerning me is the following entries keep appearing in my log:

Code:
Feb 23 07:10:44 dnscrypt-proxy[12891]: Server with the lowest initial latency: fvz-anyone (rtt: 2ms)

The problem is that 'fvz-anyone' does not appear in https://download.dnscrypt.info/resolvers-list/v2/opennic.md. Why is dnscrypt-proxy using that server? There are no other servers in my config.
 
I guess dnscrypt-proxy doesn't reload that URL or often enough. According to comments on github the fvz servers were removed more than two weeks ago, but my dnscrypt-proxy was still using them. Restarting dnscrypt-proxy forced a refresh and it no longer uses them.
 
You might also consider testing which are generally the lowest latency dns servers and permanently using those. Cloudflare is often a great choice.

Thank you, but I'm trying to stick with opennic. I don't trust other DNS providers not to start pulling shenanigans with domains they don't like ala cloudfare and dailystormer. Yeah, dailystormer is a bunch of racist assholes, but even then the idea that some guy can just wake up in a bad mood and suddenly a site he doesn't like disappears from the Internet doesn't sit well with me. It could happen with opennic too, but the type of people that run opennic I think are less likely to do such things. So, cloudfare in particular, is not a provider I trust to be a neutral information provider.
