Some domains are too broad in their classification that OpenDNS assigns a specific classification that overlaps all others.
One of the examples is "google.com", which is ranked "Search Engines" in spite of possible and influential classifications such as "Visual Search Engines" or "Video Sharing" that are embedded in the Domain code.
Another example is "bing.com", this much more expressive whose rank is "Search Engines" simply.
In this sequence, all types of content are allowed and OpenDNS guides users to configuration solutions in DNS management.
However, there are other domains that are in the same sequence, with blocking solutions by specialized DNS IPs (or CNAMEs), for which OpenDNS maintains community polls.
One of the glaring examples is Google's own domains (+ 100), which should all be ranked the same, but some are still in the polls.
This may allow some top-level domains to be inhibited and regardless of implementations that IT Admins do.
It would be good for OpenDNS to devote a little more attention, not to let domains such as "google.com.eg" be subject to votes, when the operating conditions are exactly the same as "google.com".
My suggestion will be the division between "Search Engines-Safe DNS" and "Search Engines-Unprotected" whose "Safe DNS" category would be validated by OpenDNS.
