John Leydem writes in The Register:

Microsoft's software download site was briefly categorised as a marijuana-related site and blocked by censorware outfit Websense on Monday. Websense blamed human error for the slip-up (or should that be splif-up), which it was able to quickly correct.

"For a brief period of time on Monday, the Websense database categorized incorrectly. Our system detected the error immediately," Websense said in a statement.
