    Scratch site has blocked us/me!

    jsut got this message
    Sorry, we've had to block logins from your network because it was used to break our community guidelines.

    The people in charge of the network may contact us at appeals@scratch.mit.edu (case #3571143012) for details.

    In the mean time, you can still browse the site and create projects you can save locally.
    Anyone else in CLEO getting it ?

    This was when I tried to login not just visiting the site

    Well after a few emails between me and the Scratch team, their attitude is safety first and if some teenager hijacks anothers account and calls someone names then they feel best way is to block their IP and if that means that the whole of CLEO is blocked - so be it

    They did suggest that I track down the culprits

    Really, really need the downloadable 2.0 version to get away from all this

    Use a supplier that gives you your own IP thus when your blocked its your own fault and only your establishment to blame

    This is a prime example of where using a Proxy is not good as you are all suffering for one silly user somewhere out of thousands of kids

    @SimpleSi, pretty much what was mentioned above, we wont be going through the cleo proxy so we won't be punished for some kid at another school.
