    Hey peoples,
    I've been using the Site Stats plugin from Jetpack and I noticed today that I had an unusually high number of views... In the referrers box, the top referrer (at 36 views) was this really long address:

    block.opendns.com/?wc=EgtnGAx6DXRHBgpyAgkdFxYPThYCEg%3D%3D&url=8888881571666870678080761568807816817786727479841677747670678089158173813273837071307385858106203406193906193971666870678080761568807806193983737468808770836684787477700788746985733020171707737074727385302017170768807780838468737078703077747273850784738088647166687084308583867007678083697083646880778083300619202123212321230784858370667830716677847007737066697083307166778470&ablock

    What is "block.opendns.com" and why did it query my blog 36 times today? The address itself doesn't go to anything established.
    Is my site being blocked? Is this some sort of malware? Any info would be loverly... thanks!

    Pinging this thread because I am seeing the same thing on my site. And it has been increasing as of late. Anyone know why this would be happening?

    Thanx.
