    I also have the same problem with imgur.com.  I put it on my blacklist, but I can still get to it.

    Hi fatguy5150,

    There could be several reasons why sites are not being blocked, and one of the most common reason is that your IP address was changed and didn't get updated to your Dashboard. Most ISPs will assign a dynamic IP address to home users. Every time it changes, the IP address no longer matches that of the Dashboard, and OpenDNS cannot apply its settings, so that's the first thing I would check.

    You can also go to welcome.opendns.com to see if you are still configured to OpenDNS in general. If you see the "welcome" page, you are good to go. If you are seeing the "oops, you are not using OpenDNS" page, then check your configuration settings.

    As always, feel free to open a support ticket if the issue is not resolved. The commands roblitz suggested does give some insight as to your current network settings.

    Good luck! :)

    I think something fishy is going on with Reddit and Chrome. I've seen the same issues using a VPN/DNS blocker on Android called Blokada. Manually blocking all other sites works perfectly, but Reddit continues to work.

    Did you expect a response on your comment?  Or was this just expressing your opinion?
