For the past few years Indonesian Goverment has been enforcing a web filtering mechanism to all local ISP. Therefore, all internet connection from Indonesia would be filtered against a database, containing domains inappropriate with Indonesia culture such as pornography, discrimation, gambling, etc. Of course opendns also has these categories of filtering. But since these two are running independently, a particular domain might be blocked by Indonesian gov but yet not blocked by opendns, which relies on its community.
As an OpenDNS user located in Indonesia, I depend on opendns so much. On one side I am a fanatic fan of opendns but on another side, I also have to comply with Indonesian law. Is it possible for opendns to add another web filtering category to include domains blocked by Indonesian gov ? I think it would be like 'german youth protection' category in opendns, only this one would be called differently.
It would be much appreciated if you could spare a little of your valuable time to consider about this. Thank you so much.
