    OpenDNS cannot block content, only domains. As such it cannot block specific videos on YouTube or tweets on twitter since that content is accessible via pages on the overall domain, i.e. youtube.com or twitter.com. There is no way to sort their content by domain name. This kind of category would be useful if the goal was to block all such extremist content. You would have to block the entirety of youtube, twitter, and many other services.

    Technical issues aside, is the goal of this category only to block Muslim "extremist" content? How about Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, or Hindu "extremist" content. Believe me, all of those religions have their own extremists, it's not just a Muslim phenomenon. Also, how are you classifying "extremist"? That's usually a very subjective evaluation.
