URL Examples of Categories in URL Filtering

My customers want to deploy URL filtering.

They want to have some URL examples for all categories in URL filtering

There are some examples listed on the categories stated in https://www.checkpoint.com/urlcat/categories.htm

However, example are missing in some of the categories.

While we can manage to list some missing example ( having checked on https://www.checkpoint.com/urlcat/main.htm), we have no idea / cannot find for some of the URL categories below.

Anyone from R&D, or who have access to the URL database, can give us a hand to fill in the black on below table? 

Thank you!

Some of the malware/spam/risk categories change so frequently any specific examples would be out of date rapidly.
I am not a lawyer, but listing a "sample" child abuse site publicly doesn't seem like a wise idea.
Uncategorized literally means "any URL not in our database" so one cannot give an example of that.
The others, I'm not familiar with specific examples.

It is better to use the descriptions that you see with the categories, instead of an example, in the cases an example URL is useful it is already mentioned in that description.

"They want to have some URL examples for all categories in URL filtering" - to achive especially what ? This honestly looks to me like some serious case of chronic acquisitiveness at least, hopefully not compulsion that requires therapeutic treatment 😉

Alberecht, you are right!

I do not get hold of the logic of it actually.

But you know, we have to satisfy end user's requirement whenever possible.
