Try visiting the OpenDNS preferences page from that node. Someone other
than the Admin of the node may have enabled the OpenDNS anti-phishing

You may also just want to email the admin of the Exit node and ask in
the first place...

(Disclaimer, once in another lifetime, I worked on OpenDNS and it may
not even be possible to change the preferences of a given IP address in
such a way anymore...)
