I may be blocked by Websense July 7, 2009 11:40 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life
I’m seeing a reference to blockoptions.cgi in my log files. A little research seems to indicate that this means Websense is blocking Reality Me. Last time this happened, I had been categorized as a gambling site. I despise these types of services because the onus falls on the wrong person to prove the error. It’s like a large corporation calling you up and saying, "Our accounting department has screwed up. Would you please go back 5 years in your records and show us where our error is?" Maybe next week I’ll contact Web*doesn’tmake*sense.
You’d think when one of these disservices blocked your site, they’d contact you and let you know "we’ve blocked you for reason ____. To be removed from our list either change ______ or file a complaint at ______."
If you ever go to someone’s site that shouldn’t be blocked by such a service, drop a report with Websense or whomever or at least let the site owner know they are being blocked. The site owner probably doesn’t have any idea.trackback
