    No problem, you add cl to your "always block" list.  So, what's your idea?

    Rotblitz,

    I already said my idea, and you got it wrong. I don't want to block .cl domains, I want to vote on their tags. I want to filter them on the list of domains so I can find them easily.

    I still didn't get it.  TLDs do not have tags, so you cannot vote on them.  What tag would you propose for a TLD like cl to be voted on?  And what would be the purpose for tagging and voting on them?

    Ah, thinking further I understand now what you mean.  You want to see only e.g. cl domains in the domain tagging system to vote on them.  Clear now!
    Your idea got my vote.

    Yes, your last message is right.

    I'd like to see a whitelist approach where the only ones that are allowed are TLDs that are specifically allowed. All the new TLDs popping up are a mess, and while Newly Seen Domains goes a long way toward addressing this, I'd like the ability to block all non-legacy TLDs. Or in other words, only allow com/net/org/some_countries/etc.

    Your message has nothing to do with the idea being raised here.  "Newly seen domains" is a feature of Cisco Umbrella and unrelated to domain tagging, as you state yourself in your idea.

    "I'd like to see a whitelist approach where the only ones that are allowed are TLDs that are specifically allowed."

    This exists.  If you're a home user, you go for OpenDNS VIP and enable whitelist-only mode, whitelisting the TLDs you want to allow.

    Actually rotblitz, it does have something to do with this post (perhaps not exactly), but I won't digress into pedantic specifics. I'm happy to open an alternative suggestion if I've offended your sensibilities. Perhaps that should have been your reply instead of a unnecessarily snarky 'this has nothing to do with that' response. However, I thank you for your concern and effort to respond.

    As far as VIP, I'm actually a large enterprise customer and support directs enterprise customers here for suggestions. Yes, while I could block every domain and manually whitelist some, apparently you don't understand, or don't like, the more refined functionality that I was attempting to suggest. That is probably my fault for not presenting it in a more elementary fashion.

    In the future I'll just email support and get a professional, if not tactful, reply.

    Yes, you should have raised this as an own idea, so that one can vote on it:

    In Cisco Umbrella, I'd like to see a whitelist approach where the only ones that are allowed are TLDs that are specifically allowed.  And I'd like the ability to block all non-legacy TLDs. Or in other words, only allow com/net/org/some_countries/etc.

    Now nobody can vote on your idea, because you have raised it as a comment on a totally different idea.  No votes, no success.  You simply posted for nothing this way.  OpenDNS engineers simply view the idea bank sorted by votes, so your comment will most likely never be seen by them, or at least be ignored.

    And still disagreed, your idea is no way related to the original idea, even not only not exactly.  The original idea is solely about a presentation of / selection within the domain tagging feature.

    "In the future I'll just email support"

    Guess what they will respond.  I'll tell you:
    Please raise this as an idea in our idea bank, so that other users can vote on it.

    If they respond much differently, I'll owe you a dozen of beers, promised!

    Also, I didn't like your tone very much, so I revoked my vote-up on your other idea. I thought I gave you a favour, but I do not really need to support your idea as I am not dependent on the Umbrella service.
