OpenDNS is blocking Dan's Data as a phishing site. Huh??

Did you send them a message from that link at the bottom of the block page? I did.
Think for yourself, schmuck!

I did as well. The problem is is that OpenDNS gives you no way to whitelist a URL without running their dynamic DNS proggy, which doesn't (at least as I can find) give you URL you can use in the external world to have certain programs always be able to find your box. something tells me that running 2 separate dynamic DNS updaters will not go well.

Got an email just now from OpenDNS telling me that the phishing tag has been removed.

Dan Rutter a phisher. Yeah, right.
