Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

My problem with Kinja this week:

So not everything on the Gawker network is blocked here (obviously or I wouldn't be posting). But a couple blogs are blocked entirely (Kotaku and Deadspin, though only the former concerns me). The real problem is here on the ODeck though:

That shows up with practically any image when opened in its own tab. Note the URL though! It's a compound URL, linking to a gawkerassets image through a kinja-img link. What is the point of that? Just use the gawkerassets link! (Especially considering it is the kinja-img.com domain that is blocked here, not gawkerassets.)


Sorry, just ranting. It's really hard to enjoy the Observation Deck when I can't see any of the pictures. :(
