For years now if my home computer went down I would use the library and had no problem accessing this site. Now the site is blocked as it is identified, I assume, as unsuitable for access to children. Raised this with the library who said they would contact, is it Lightspeed, but the situation is unchanged. I'm told there is a wider problem and schools have had newspapers blocked. What I find so surprising is that that just seems to be that -an acknowledged problem nothing can be done about...

Thanks for this Rob - I just wonder as we have had techie problems it might be us? But as you say it is appears a wider issue. Yet we have lots of poems on site and sent by parents sharing their childs work - often inspired by a school project.

All very confusing.

Could just be this part of the country, Jan. Though, as you say, it's a bit confusing. Huffington post, which I regularly use, is blocked too. Used to come up as 'identified as a forum'. Now, it is 'identified as anonymous since... 'with a date provided. Library contacted the company by email and said it would take a fortnight to remedy and I would be informed by email. But to no avail. Anyway I'll make another attempt next week....
