Here's one to ponder on that question

OpenDNS is a company (opendns.com), who so happen to in essence run an
open resolver service, but this is not what is the ISC article refers
to, the latter of which would more generically be called an open DNS
resolver.  The former is a personal or business decision, the latter is
just good operational advice.  A comment by Paul to the original ISC
article above also clarifies this difference.
