    why can't I block overture.com? Some sort of technical hacking going on? Why does that domain get special treatment?

    Hacking. It's always hacking.

    What did you enter into the block list? You flushed caches afterward? And you IP is updated correctly to your Dashboard without errors?

    As far as I recall, Overture is a business partner of OpenDNS where they obtain the ad side of the business from. Same as you can't block OpenDNS or Yahoo, you can't block Overture (which is part of Yahoo).

    Try with blocking advertising.yahoo.com.

    You can block it with dozens of other methods however.

    Oh, that is one on those domains, isn't it? I never ran into that one before.
