    I believe that such thing has not been done yet for the following reason: if a domain is tagged only for pornography and not for nudity for example, and an administrator has enabled only the nudity filter, openDNS will not block a hardcore porn website!

    The solution would be  I suppose for enabling the light categories Lingerie/Bikini, Sexuality, Nudity, the Pornography category to be enabled automatically, or something like that.

    " if a domain is tagged only for pornography and not for nudity for example, and an administrator has enabled only the nudity filter, openDNS will not block a hardcore porn website!"

    Then the administrator intended exactly this.  You get what you configure, even if it does not really make sense.  Many if not most nudity is not pornography.

    @rotblitz, "Many if not most nudity is not pornography."

    I've heard those statistics before as well. I also heard that 98% of all statistics are made up :)

    The reason pornographic sites are often marked with multiple categories is because votes for "pornography" are too slow. NSFW sub-reddits are a prime example. Tagging a domain with "nudity" might at least win a vote from someone as yourself and thus make the filters moderately more effective.

    Totally disagreed. What if I want to block pornography, but not nudity?

    I agree you should be able to distinguish. I also think the more objectionable material should be easier to block. 

    Is there a feature in OpenDNS that would allow the administrator to unblock from the block page with a single link? I think that might also make it easier for someone to vote or specifically unblock a site they believe is only nudity.

    You can add a domain name to the never block list,  But this has only 25 entries, so will fill up soon, very soon.

    And the "feature" is "review this domain" or opening a support ticket.
