This is due to this site having an "uncategorized URL." Is there anything you can do about that?

Sounds like a very stupid reason to block a site. What do they mean by uncategorized? the url parameters i.e ?t=number or the site address itself ?

I think it's rather a content filter on a firewall or whatever. If you can find out what kind of content filter your company is using you may can get the website categorised by the vendor of the content filter.

Not 100% sure, but you can get some idea on tHis site: https://www.trustedsource.org/?p=mcafee

Your site IS categorized there.

if it's websense: you can look it up here: https://www.websense.com/content/Sitelookup.aspx it requires a login though. it seems that you can register for free. i haven't done it, so i don't know for sure.
