    What will it block and what won't it? For instance, say a porn item comes up on amazon, I don't want it to block amazon completely, does anyone know whether it'd block the item?

    OpenDNS is primarily a recursive DNS service, so it only sees the domains your network is looking up. This is what can be blocked therefore. That said, it works well, as far as it can work and as it's supposed to work. Also, if amazon hosted the "porn items" on a separate (sub)domain, this would be an easy thing to block.

    "say a porn item comes up on amazon"

    Any idea how this could be identified except by your judgement in your brain? If you were a developer trying to achieve this, how would you progress? Is it possible at all?
