    "I don't know what kind of site it is exactly."

    If you install and run a program like http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/dns_query_sniffer.html you can see in real-time what domains are being queried while surfing. With this knowledge you can then easily and granularily blacklist and whitelist domain names as needed.

    "I had "search engines" blocked for a little while, with Google.com and safe.duckduckgo.com whitelisted."

    Not entirely sure what you want to achieve, but if you just want to block all search engines but DuckDuckGo, you better do not block the search engines category, but you add the www subdomains of the most famous search engines to your "always block" list, like www.google.com, www.bing.com, www.yahoo.com.

    That's absurd. There are thousands of search engines out there. Allowing people to block all search engines (with or without exceptions) is exactly what the "search engine" category is for.

    I see now where you stand.  No matter, the same applies:

    Block the Search Engines category, and whitelist those domains and subdomains you need access to.  You now know how to find them out.

    And let's see what OpenDNS say about your idea to optionally disable inheritance of tags to subdomains not being categorized.
