    I'm not sure which thread you are referring to, but OpenDNS has made it pretty clear that they won't be extending this additional feature to the pay product. Basically, if you want anything else beyond what the free product offers you'll need to pay for it.

    It may be important to some people, but not at all important to many others. Is it important enough for you to pay for what you are using?

    Thats fair enough Matt :) and maybe im asking for too much, dunno, but for me its essential and feel it is a basic feature that both home and business need but i wont be forking out cash for it at this stage.

    It's a business decision on their part. If you want them to start giving away something for free that they are already offering in a pay product you need to give them a business justification for why they should decrease the value of the pay product and remove some of the incentive for people to purchase this product. Although it's great that they offer this free, basic, service to home users, they aren't a charity and do need to turn a profit.

    An explanation of how this "basic" feature is something that most of their home users actually want, have the knowledge to use, or would actually use the feature would go a long way to justifying this business decision on their part. As it is, I doubt most home users even realize that there are stats available, and even fewer would use it, whether or not time stamps were available.

    As is, since the free product is only available for home users, businesses will need to pay, which means some flavor of their Umbrella offering.

    Is a time stamp included in any of the pay products for homes? I'm willing to pay for the feature, just not sure if it's even offered.

    This is not part of any home version, but is included in the Enterprise versions, even real-time stats with timestamps.
