One of the most useful Mexico City Restaurant review and listing sites, has been blocked by as a supposed "phishing" site. That seems to be nonsense to me. OpenDNS provides a feedback comment form, but I fear to fill it out, for *it* may be a phishing site!

Anyone know a way around this? I hate to muck around with my DNS settings, as I don't want to mess up my internet connection.

  1. Not blocked for me. I just opened it on my iMac using Chrome. Maybe try a different browser?

    1. I changed my settings to OpenDNS and didn't have a problem accessing QC. It looks like OpenDNS uses as their source and they're not showing it as a suspicious domain right now. Maybe the domain got flagged briefly and now they're clear. Or could it have been a typo?

      If it's still a problem you could access it through a proxy. This site links to a large number of free proxy servers:

      Basically just pick one and enter the QC URL. The proxy server accesses the site on your behalf, thus bypassing OpenDNS.

        Soul Vole and I are both in the DF, I believe, and the website works for both of us. IMHO, it's about your server and not about the websites. You might want to ask others in your area.

        1. re: cristina

          Thank you. I'm sure it's because I have OpenDNS settings in my Network Preferences. I'll try ProxyFree and see what happens.

          It works! A little slow, but I can access now.
          No problem accessing the site on my iPod Touch,even without a proxy server.

        2. Just FYI, the site is unblocked again.
