    liveweb.archive.org/http://whateverpornsite.com will act as a porn proxy. I tried reporting liveweb.archive.org and web.archive.org, but my submission was rejected saying that those domains had already been added.

    Can they either be re-added, or fixed? Because blocking them isn't working. Any other proxy I've checked is blocked just fine.

    The primary purpose of page archival tools is for research and reference, not adult content or for proxied content. Domain Tagging is used to tag the primary purpose or intended use of a domain; since liveweb.archive.org doesn't appear to be primarily used for adult content or for proxied content, it will not be tagged as such.

    You can always block indevidual domains using your OpenDNS account that has optional and customizable filtering settings from your account Dashboard, here: https://dashboard.opendns.com/settings/

    Well, google cache appears to be blocked. Why is google's cache different from liveweb.archive.org? Are you suggesting that google's cache is primarily intended for pornographic content? I'm pretty sure that's not the case.

    Couldn't one argue that the other proxies have legitimate non-pornographic uses? Possibly even that some of them are intended for legitimate use? Wouldn't that defeat the whole point of trying to use OpenDNS to filter pornography? Anything with a "primarily for something other than adult content" could leave serious loopholes in the OpenDNS adult content filter.

    "Well, google cache appears to be blocked."

    Is it? Not that I knew unless you blocked it individually.

    One may consider to treat liveweb.archive.org as anonymizer/proxy and add it to this category. Nevertheless, pornography would be the wrong category anyway.
