Australia is on the other side of the world, perhaps that is why the good Online Armor folks have reversed the meaning of the words Allow and Block. Always thought that a block entry in your Hosts file would block traffic to the corresponding IP address. Not so with Online Armor's Hosts file! It actually allows it. The corresponding Online Armor Web Help page offers a most peculiar explanation for the phenomenon: * Allow – Allows the selected entry in your HOSTS file. * Block – Blocks the selected entry from being made to your HOSTS file.
