    I have been blocked from answering my thread

    Hello.

    I was trying to post my answer in my thread about the syllables but eveytime I try I receive a notification which says I have been blocked. I don't understand what happened. I was going to post this answer: On a Russian website I read that open-syllable words are pronounced alphabetically as in 'baby' and ''music'' the vowels 'a' in ''baby'' and ''u'' in 'music' bbi ˈmjuːzɪk so they teach to pay attention if the word has a vowel at the end. But ''music'' doesn't have a vowel at the end, and it is still pronounced ''alphabetically. Rabbit and napkin are closed syllables like music . Paper is a closed syllable but the a is pronounced 'ei' as it is usually pronounced in open syllables. I am lost!

    I have moved this thread to Support. Please provide as many details as you can about the problem you're having.
    I have also submitted a post to that thread to make sure it is not closed.

    As I cannot post here, maybe I should contact a moderator ? Oh, it worked this time. I received a message which said 'you have been blocked', I don't remember the whole message. I was afraid I would lose all my threads so I started to save them.

    Have you checked your system for viruses/malware?

    This may be due to the server's security firewall. If you could please post some specific details about the message you received, that would be very helpful.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
