i.imgur.com blocked since 13th March

I've noticed that a site I frequency visit (reddit.com) has had all its images from the image hosting site imgur.com blocked by plus.net. I have discussed the problem with other plus.net customers.

Why has this website been blocked and how do I go about unblocking it without using a proxy?

Presumably some its content is on the IWF list mentioned here.

Re: i.imgur.com blocked since 13th March

I too cannot load any images hosted on imgur.com, and also the images on http://www.blu-ray.com/ won't show either.  Yet if I go in via a proxy, both site's images load just fine.  
EDIT:  Looks like 4chan is having the same problem too, no images load normally.  Yet if I jump onto my neighbours Virgin connection they load just fine.  So considering that Virgin also adhere to the IWF list and the images load on their connection, then logic dictates that it isn't the IWF blocking the images from loading.  It has to be something at Plusnet.

Struggling here on thn-ag1. I'll do some digging (no pun intended BTW with reddit being one of the sites affected Roll eyes )...

Hello, i.imgur.com is indeed currently being blocked by the IWF due to what looks like a single dodgy image on the whole site. I'm raising a change to get i.imgur.com whitelisted for you which should be done by the end of today with any luck Smiley
