Ok - I peek at the FOG few times a day at work. Today it was fine as usual but then I start getting a web filter policy block. It says the reason is because the Websense category is “Shopping”. Has this just changed?

I'm pretty sure the administration of this website would never give the FOG a label of "shopping".

What is this "websense" and who are they to label websites?

Though there are some commercial activities here through the dealers and classifieds pages, it is not what this forum is about.

Hi Mike,

Take a look at this: https://www.websense.com/content/support/library/deployctr/v76/dic_wcg.aspx

Kind regards,
Oliver

Mike, it's probably an association derived by software (websense) they are using to manage the network usage.  How they came up with that might be a mystery your network admins might not be able to explain.  Sometimes the the software companies don't share that information and it changes all the time anyway, but the network admins would have the right to whitelist anything deemed acceptable.

To the best of my knowledge nothing changed today on the forum end.

I have noticed in the past that I can follow a post for days or weeks and then get the blockage.

Probably just something currently posted on the home page blocking me right now.
