This surprised me at first. I didn't think there was any problem with

I had to look back in some conversations, but I had met someone using
EmerDNS in some chats and seemed they are happy. Skycoin
devs claim they don't need peering, but I'm trying to advance that
conversation with them, anyhow. I see a need there.

Just to comment on the article listed, sounds more like a problem with
their system vs any problem with OpenNIC. I get that OPs point, but if
anyone can peek into that network using an inproxy, it is nothing to do
with OpenNIC and everything to do with their application of DNS.

Regardless, people will complain. Is there any CA at namecoin that was
originally discussing peering with? If there is an issue and they have
not contacted us to stop peering, I don't see a need to do so.

My 2 cents.
