Blocked by SonicWALL

A while back I was trying to visit a commenter’s site only to discover she was blocked by SonicWALL for p0rnography. I eventually got around to visiting her site and have not found the p0rnography (not that I’m looking). So I did a bit of poking around and discovered that you can find out your site’s classification as-well-as request a change to that classification.

    I’m almost afraid to look. Is this going to be one of those things like when my Technorati blog value was $0?

    Figures: ‘unrated.’ I tell you, sometimes I wonder if I’m just a virtual figment of the interweb’s imagination.
    *sigh*

    I am also a category 31. Whatever that means. Although I’m guessing that is good.
