Even if it is (I've not checked) - it should be Opt-In and not Opt-Out !!

Oops just saw you edit your post!

This is a good thing? It's an opt-in service that allows people to setup filters who wouldn't otherwise know how (most people don't know what opendns is).

"Hi, this is (insert your ISP name here) customer support, how can we help you?"

"Erm, please can you re-enable the porn on my PC..."

"Sorry, I didn't get that? Can you say that again?"

"GIVE ME MY PORN BACK!!"

Parents try to encourage their kids to read more books at this time and age and this will be another reason to do so..... Go back to the old time magazines :D
