The Washington posted an Q&A with OpenDNS.
What struck me was the following.
We just want a level playing field. Verizon Wireless is blocking us and there are reports that ISPs want to block OpenDNS. They don’t want third party domain name services.
So i googled some more and found this : http://www.thedomains.com/2010/06/16/neustars-alternative-dns-service-is-blocking-parked-pages/
That took me back to their frontpage with the following article : http://www.thedomains.com/2010/11/25/opendns-vs-verizon-now-the-players-are-eating-there-own-as-they-put-up-their-own-ads/
In the comments there is this one entry with this link : http://www.verisign.com/domain-name-services/current-registrars/internet-profile-service
After soaking this all in i am concluding that :
1 Domaining got even more complex
2 There are some “powers” pushing buttons beyond any control.

- OpenDNS Adds Data Center in Singapore (datacenterknowledge.com)
