    You should know that you block also CNAMEs and real names if you add domains to your individual blacklist.

    For example, the CNAME clientmetrics-augmentum.kik.com is an alias for clientmetrics-2-production2-1829885752.us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com.

    nslookup clientmetrics-augmentum.kik.com.
    Server: resolver1.opendns.com
    Address: 208.67.222.222

    It's an extremely bad idea to block amazonaws.com, because this breaks most major websites.  It is how they host content nowadays.

    Is there anything I should change as well, or just amazonaws.com?

    I cannot answer this question, because I do not know what you want to have blocked and what not.  Only you can know.
