Blocking Indymedia

Websense is a product installed on corporate computer networks to control how much time employees spend jerking off engaging in non-work related web browsing, or viewing inappropriate sites.

Putting the sense into Websense, according to UK Indymedia
Websense blocks Indy Media as an "Advocacy Group".
Advocacy Group? For what? I can think of several more appropriate headings. According to the list of categories on Websense's site, Indymedia could also be classified as:"Militancy and Extremist", "Racism and Hate", "Non-Traditional Religions and Occult and Folklore", "Tasteless", "Violence" and two or three others I'm sure.

The one category it probably wouldn't fit into however, is "News and Media". Funny about that.

Now get back to work!
