I don't think that sandbox pages should be displayed on category pages.

On en.wikipedia.org, the sandbox page User:PIrish/sandboxes/sandbox2 is displayed on the category page Category:Michigan_state_parks

Tried a minor edit to the category page to see if the sandbox page would get removed. The sandbox page did not get removed.

It's still in the category on the page.

Just remove it from the sandbox page. There is no reason to have a blacklist for pages not to categorise.

So you are telling me to modify somebody elses sandbox page, that they may want to copy to a live page at some point in the future. I don't think so.

Is there an option to blacklist the User namespace from getting categorized?

Nope.

There is reason for categorising user namespace pages, as it gets done quite regularly.
