Will there eventually be a logging option for DNS queries?  It would be nice to know if/when something was blocked, in case I need to make an exclusion.

This would create a crapload of backlash. What, it is possible to log DNS queries? So what, AirVPN lied about the no-log?
I think I can answer this with a confident "No, never".

I don't understand this sentence. Blocked by what? AirDNS doesn't block a single domain name. If enabled, it even unblocks a few of them. :)
Is there a case where you think AirDNS blocked something? Or what's the cause for this sentence?

There are a few misconceptions here.  There is a difference between logging DNS queries temporarily and logging VPN traffic.  It's possible to enable logs on DNS for like 5 minutes and then turn it off.  Let's say I'm trying to go to a site that Easylist, or any other list, blocks.  Wouldn't it be nice to know that, so that you could then make an exclusion?  This is something that every other DNS filtering service allows; ControlD, NextDNS, AdGuard Home, etc.  So, what I'm asking for is nothing new or scandalous in any way.

Hello!

We're sorry, we can't do that. Although you say it's not, what you propose is indeed specific client related traffic monitoring and logging/storing which we are contractually obliged not to perform. Even setting it as an opt-in feature would surely cause endless controversy and potential contractual breach. As a workaround, if a DNS query fails on our DNS (remember that each server runs its own DNS server) you can discover the reason through dig or nslookup.

Kind regards
