With regard to my recent Websense Issues I have received a reply.
Thank you for writing to Websense. The site you submitted is a virtually hosted site that was not in our database. However, it shares an IP address with another site in our database which caused an unintended overblock. The site has been reviewed and categorized accordingly: http://www.cengal.com/ - Information Technology Categorization updates should be available in the next scheduled publication of the database. A new database is published every business day, five days a week, Pacific Standard Time. Thank you for your assistance, The Websense Database Services Staff S.G.
Please sort out the performance of your sandbox environment. Its horrendous. Yours etc., Frustrated PayPal Developer

Blocked Site Details: Category: Sex URL: http://www.cengal.com To review information regarding this blocked Internet Web site, please go to http://www.websense.com/global/en/SupportAndKB/SiteLookup. You will need to register with Websense for access.I decided to check for myself online and yes their database has our website categorised incorrectly. This is potentially very embarrassing for us, and I've requested that they update their database.
I have been informed by a client using Websense that they cannot access my website. We are an information technology company and are not in the sex trade. I would like this categorisation changed to save further embarrassment. I would also like to know under what criteria you categorised our site as 'sex'. This is potentially damaging to us as a company. RegardsOf critical importance is why the mistake happened, and not simply fixing it. I'm very concerned that similar tools will cause the same problems. Does Cengal mean something sordid that I'm completely unaware of?
