I was surprised to see myself blocked from Facebook when using a shared wifi access point. My guess is this is because some random person has set up an account with OpenDNS and specified this type of block from the public facing ip address.
If I stop using OpenDNS and accept the DNS servers that their DHCP server issues, I'm able to access the site, but then I loose the security (and privacy) that comes with using the DNSCrypt proxy.
How Does OpenDNS verify that an account that is set up to block sites from a specific ip address is the owner of that ip address and actually has the authority to do this? This seems like a first amendment lawsuit waiting to happen for OpenDNS.
