If a domain has been incorrectly "confirmed" in a category, allow challengesCompleted
Some domain tags were "confirmed" years ago, and the tags may no longer be accurate. Also, some people are overzealous, and "confirm" tags that are completely wrong. There should be a "challenge this tag" button, to allow for more community involvement. I know of one domain that has ABSOLUTELY NO ADULT MATERIAL, no nudity, no adult themes even, and NEVER HAD ANY. But it is currently "confirmed" in several categories. And there's no way to challenge that tagging!
There is actually! At domain.opendns.com, you can use the "Flag for Review" link to get our moderators looking at the classification for a domain. See the attached image for an example from searching for youtube.com:
Additionally, you can always email us at email@example.com to have us take a second look.
Voting for a tag, no matter how accurate or meanspirited, does not guarantee that that will be the final categorization. A moderator still has to approve the tag(s) and finalize it.
Opening up flags for voting for removal also opens up the process for abuse by people who don't like accurate tags applied to their domains, such as porn or some of the other undesirable ones. And even then, despite the number of votes, nothing would be automatic, a moderator would still need to approve and finalize it.
If you disagree with how a domain is categorized, especially if you own the domain you can always open a support ticket. When that is discussed in these forums it seems to get attention, and if necessary, action, within a few days.
