    You did flush your local resolver cache and browser cache, did you?

    This doesn't help?

    Your ISP may be redirecting your DNS lookups to their DNS servers, preventing you from using 3rd party DNS services...

    Find it out:
    dig +noall +answer txt @
    - or -
    nslookup -type=txt
    - or -
    host -t txt

    And yes, Chrome is a bad browser to use in conjunction with OpenDNS. It does what Google wants, not what you want.

    It goes directly after the SOA server and uses OpenDNS as a fall back if the SOA server is not responsive.

    Your contribution is irrelevant. This site can never tell you something about the effectiveness of your DNS configuration, and if your ISP redirects your DNS lookups.
