Gerry,

I sat on the Security and Stability committee for ICANN and was part of 
the folks that reviewed SiteFinder.

OpenDNS is not SiteFinder;  Give them a try, the DNS resolution is  
blazing fast and they do fix up the most common typos.

One thing massively different between openDNS and SiteFinder is that you 
have choice -- the choice to use them.  IMHO  many will choose to use 
OpenDNS because it is fast and  can offer protections  you just can't 
get from running your own resolver.


best,

-rick
