    Seems to me a domain should be tagged in as fewer categories as possible. Ideally, given a choice of several applicable categories the more "specific" or "least general" category should be the selected category. For example, I block the "Business Services" category but allow the "Financial Institutions" category. Most banks are tagged in ONLY the "Financial Institutions" category. wellsfargo.com is tagged in both, which means that I now have to whitelist wellsfargo.com. Although this is not a big deal, as time goes on, and as more and more domains get tagged in multiple categories, it seems that the ability to bock entire categories will become less and less useful. Am I missing something? Another option would be to give users a dashboard option to not block a domain that is tagged in multiple categories when at least one of the categories in not blocked by a user, even when the other categories are. Again, am I missing something, is this a feature I have yet to discover, or is this not the way OpenDNS category blocking currently works?

    Some domains can't be pigeonholed so easily. I admit there is a fine line between some categories as they apply to some domains. It's just something we must live with.
