Must be an error on Websense's side. OSNN should be classified as Technology and has been in the past.

If you administer websense, there is a white list.

In the old days - I used to SSH to my home, and browse from there. Once I found an open port that is. SSH tunnel is just that ... they can't see inside.

See no evil ..... you get the picture.

I asked our IT head office to look into the listing I realy cant see why this place would be blocked.

Thanks Matt

I found that just after I asked LOLOL

But it seems that Websence has black listed you as "Malicious Web Sites" I asked for a confirmation from our IT Security team ... but he said

Wayne,
http://www.osnn.net/ is categorized as Malicious by Websense. Since I trust their categorization, I don't want to risk and unblock site categorized by Websense as Malicious!
Your request is denied.

I answered back and linked the Microsoft sites ... to be continued !!

Wow, I wonder what would cause that?! I really doubt its that warez thread, if it is then that is ridiculous. /. talks about or says the word warez from time to time on their comments and articles and such and I imagine they don't get blacklisted.

Crazy stuff.

I would think you guys would like to know if Websense has blacklisted you ... maybe someone from here should inquire?

That's a total BS answer from a lazy IT dept. A competent IT dept would realize that any filtering software misclassifies sites from time to time and will check the site themselves to determine if it should be blocked or not.

At one point our mailsweeper software at work was blocking all emails coming from the @nhs.net domain as spam. Which pretty much covers everybody who works for the uk health service, lol! Pretty good when we act for doctors, lol! Soon got it sorted though.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
