It may likely due to Unrated category which leads to System having any of this: "none", "pending", "unavailable", or "unlicensed". You can consider the below having CPL rule that will redirect the user request to the page that will submit "Site Review" to BCWF (Bluecoat Web Filter) team. This is at least having some leeways for user to express reason for the action that is blocked by proxy
