comment How do I prevent a website being misclassified by Websense?
@Lese: I disagree re. morally questionable. The only time Websense have acted on our requests is genuinely wrong categorisations (see tourist site/pornography example above) I'm trying to give them the benefit of the doubt and see this as helping the filter improve as supposed to disputing controversial decisions. For example I could ask for playboy.com to be categorised as "hobbies" and probably get told to shove off :o)

Jeff, I'm posting at work (which uses websense) and everything seems fine - webapps, gaming and the holy trilogy sites all work as well. The version of websense we use has 50+ categories, but "social networking" isn't one of them.

Lese, if you have an account with websense (as the company I works for do) you can submit a URL to get recategorised. I would that we have only been successful where the categorisation has been blatently wrong - for example a scottish tourism site was categorised as pornography. Anything marginally debatable we have pointed out has never been acted upon.

comment What is basic requiremnt to publish ads on site?
The adwords policy clearly states "Publishers may not place AdSense code on pages with content that violates any of our content guidelines." You have pages on your site about hacking/cracking. Your content violates the guidelines, therefore you can't display adwords on your website. If you want adwords on your site, remove all the hacking/cracking pages entirely. Don't try and trick google by removing/altering individual words, google will win.

comment What is basic requiremnt to publish ads on site?
You have numerous references to hacking in your meta data, and in the article itself, for example: "Congrats!! You have become a hacker" I don't think removing the word "crack" from keywords will be enough.

comment Should I bother supporting IE6?
Indeed, previously we used usb drives with portable firefox on, then usb drives were disabled. Its going to be a world of pain whenever the upgrade comes around.
