Outraged that "pornhub.com" is not blocked under "moderate" filter settings

    Nobody here can do anything you request above.  We are all users like you, with the same power like you.

    Look, this domain is categorized in the right way.  https://domain.opendns.com/pornhub.com
    Nothing to be added to any list!  If it does not work for you, then you have a problem different from what you think it is.

    Are you using OpenDNS at all?  http://welcome.opendns.com/
    If not, why not?  You must use OpenDNS to get the expected results, of course!

    Copy & paste the complete plain text output of the following diagnostic commands to here, so that I may see what the problem is with your dashboard settings not taking effect.

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com.
    nslookup whoami.akamai.net.
    nslookup www.pornhub.com.

    Good morning.

    There is a simple reason that you are still seeing some content from pornhub or any other site that should be blocked by your content filtering settings; The sites were previously visited before you enabled the content filter and you have not cleared your cache (specifically your DNS cache). OpenDNS is blocking active content; what you are seeing is essentially "stored" content.

    For Windows computers... (please do your own research for Apple computers; Google "flush dns cache macOS"

    1. go to your Run|Search bar at the bottom left of your desktop
    2. type "cmd" without the quotes
    3. In the black colored window that pops up (command prompt window) type "ipconfig /flushdns"
    4. open the internet browser of your choice and test the result by attempting to reach "pornhub" or any other site that you were still seeing content.

    On a side note...

    • I'm not affiliated with OpenDNS
    • realize that this is a free service. Your "outrage" should be toned down a bit; especially since this is actually an end user issue and they are not responsible for the state of your computer.
    • it would be in your best interest to upgrade your computer skills so you understand how these things work; the "ipconfig" command is not particularly advanced and is your bread and butter tool for troubleshooting network issues on your computer.
    • you should also learn how to clear the browser | internet cache, history, etc... or purchase a tool that will do it for you (I recommend Glary Utilities from glarysoft.com
