Old and incorrectly tagged domains

    Well, although they don't clog up my database (I don't have a related database), it would make sense to purge this old stuff.

    Btw, you're not the first person proposing this...
    You better look for the other related threads to vote them up.  This thread has currently zero votes, even not yours.  I'll start with mine then...
    Votes is all which counts for OpenDNS to review ideas.

    Thanks for that... I didn't know you could upvote your own post.

    I'll do a search for other threads and see what comes up.

    You still didn't vote up on your own idea.

    Also, here is nothing about URLs, just about domain names.  These are two different things, and DNS knows only about domains, never about URLs which are called URI nowadays anyway.

    Haha, OK, I'm old-school and I still think of URLs (URIs) and Domains as different words for the same thing but obviously I'm not up with it....

    I've updated the post and changed URLs to Domains so there's no confusion and hopefully I've upvoted it now.

    by the way, I did a Google search on URI and URL and it seems they're not strictly the same thing..

    From http://www.baeldung.com/java-url-vs-uri

    The difference between them is straightforward after knowing their definitions:

    • Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) − a sequence of characters that allows the complete identification of any abstract or physical resource
    • Uniform Resource Locator (URL) − a subset of URI that, in addition to identifying where a resource is available, describes the primary mechanism to access it

    Now we can conclude that every URL is a URI, but the opposite is not true...

    but then, from https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/19101/what-is-the-difference-between-a-uri-and-a-url.....

    The W3C realized that there is a ton of confusion about this. They issued a URI clarification document that says that it is now OK to use the terms URL and URI interchangeably (to mean URI).

    So, like most things in the IT world, any good question has more than one correct answer (I've been in IT all my working life and this sort of thing never ceases to exasperate me).

    Very well researched!  But not very relevant for OpenDNS matters which deals with domains / hostnames / server names only.  These must be part of an absolute URL/URI, but are not required with a relative URL/URI.

    I vote on older domains. Especially in the Gambling category.
