I picked up Mturk after a bit of a hiatus and am finding things are not working quite like I remember. Many of the surveys I try to complete fail to load, and the only difference between when I worked last and now is that I am using a VPN. Has anyone else had this problem and know of a solution? Disabling it seemed to work but considering the first survey I got was saying "we record your IP address, cookies, and all sorts of personal data, just trust us that we aren't going to take advantage of it" I am reminded of why such added security is necessary.

People turking on US accounts from outside the US has been a pretty major problem on MTurk. Many requesters (survey requesters, especially) don't care for VPNs.
