MWG Blocking Cached Pages

When using google and trying to look at cached pages of my searches the page is blocked under Anonymizing Utilities, Search Engines. Why?

Why would someone want to see cached pages?

I'm sure I have other questions but I can't think of any now. I work for a library system and one of the librarians has contacted me about this. I can't allow traffic for anonymizing utilities but I should be able to allow traffic for cached web pages.

Re: MWG Blocking Cached Pages

Cached pages are categorized as Anonymizing Utilities since this cached datas allowes to access data which might be blocked normally by other categories.

Example. http:/ is blocked by your policy due to category sex.

If someone fetches the cache in google he is able to do this since google is categorized as Search Engine....

So accessing this cache will bypass your policy. To prevent this google cache is categorized also in Anonymizing utilities.

If you want to allow this you should a new rule before your categorization ruleset take place.

The easiest way might be to allow google generally.
