    I've just downloaded the latest version of OA. I like it so far. Was wondering about the HOSTS tab and why all these sites are listed green or allowed? Do I have to manually set these to blocked?

    In other words OA keeps your hosts file unchanged. The entries showing up in your hostsfile are the sites that are being blocked. Allowed in this context only means that having a URL for badsite.com being directed to your host file 127.0.0.1.
