    "why does OpenDNS not just show a simple / plain browser window when it has blocked a site?"

    The ads on the block page pay the free service.  You can eliminate these ads by local measures, e.g. AdBlock Plus or hosts file entries.

    "One link I clicked on fired up numerous popups etc and required me to kill the iexplorer process."

    This should not occur.  You'll have to open a support ticket with the link in question, so that OpenDNS can have a word with the service provider in charge for the ads.
