[CS-FSLUG] DNS blockages?

I stopped using OpenDNS when I had at least 2 or 3 sites that were blocked
due to alleged 'adult content' when they were actually conservative and maybe
not 'mainstream' political blogs. 

I went back to my ISP's DNS and haven't had those issues since. I have
noticed that some sites get flagged with the Firefox 'WOT' add-on
as dangerous, but with that I can still visit the site. It's more
often with alternative health as well as some politically conservative sites.
