Honestly, we've had Discord blocked for enough time. Now that Coronavirus is bearing down on us more than ever, we need our friends to keep us company. Sometimes those friends can be online, yes, but we need to be taught the safety of being online(no personal info, etc).

Without our friends, we don't have anyone that can keep us company through such times. Without company, it gets sickeningly lonely. Some of us can't afford computers, and we rely on Discord to maintain contact. The least the school can do is keep it blocked during school hours and the rest of the day release all of those websites. I mean come on, why are we restricting any site for that matter when the day is over? It's our time, once school is over, the time is ours if we don't have homework. We blocked Discord to keep people safe from crimes. If you catch a student in the midst of the crime, why don't you just educate them on keeping themselves safe, instead of cutting us off from our friends, the ones that comfort us when skies are gray and the ones that shine the light in a pitch-black room? We can't study all day long, it simply isn't possible. Sometimes we need to relax, chill and browse the world wide web. To block off this huge network is repulsive and needs to be brought to attention as soon as possible. In light of all of this, what do we do? Absolutely nothing. Sickening, y'all. Absolutely sickening. If I haven't mentioned in this debate, I'm a 14-year-old software programmer that made an app that detects coronavirus from chest Xrays(can be viewed at https://xray-analyzer.codextheduplexa.repl.co It also detects some other diseases, but that's for you to find out ;)

On a more serious note, though, we need Discord unblocked. We can't ghost our friends just because our school wants us severed from the outside world.

This is essentially the same as allowing kids to text in class.

@Zavexeon Hence why I am proposing AFTER school hours, such as 7:00 PM, those restrictions are lifted.

@CodexTheDuplexA Oh alright. Could you possibly copy and paste the description from the change.org into here? Sorry, I didn't read the stuff from the link. :pensive:
