-OpenNIC implemented a DNS blacklisting API to block certain domains from being resolved. The reason for this is mostly to stop spreading malware and stopping highly illegal or abusive behavior on the domain level that would otherwise negatively affect the reputation of the OpenNIC project. DNS blacklisting finds its use mainly on TLDs where a direct zone control is not possible or not wanted (due to OpenNICs no-censorship policy) like the [[opennic:​dot:​bit|.bit]] TLD where domains are often used to spread malware due to its anonymity which causes a negative IP rating on certain IP blacklist on DNS blacklists like the [[https://​www.spamhaus.org/​sbl/​|Spamhaus Block List]].+OpenNIC implemented a DNS blacklisting API for [[opennic:​tier2|Tier 2]] operators ​to block certain domains from being resolved.
