A company called Websense makes software that claims to help companies block employees from visiting malicious Web sites. I don't know how good the software/service is, but any tools that can help unsuspecting users from screwing up their computers should be a good thing.

What I don't understand, however, is why the server logs for this Web site—spamwars.com—occasionally list floods of hits from what appear to be Websense installations blocking access to this site. I have emailed Websense support twice about this, but they do not reply to explain what's going on. Is spamwars.com banned? If so, why? Websense and spamwars.com are on the same side.

As the texters thumb, "WTF?"
