I noticed when this question, How do these primes jump?, was bumped to the front page, the image I posted:

    $\begingroup$ There is a post on Meta Stack Exchange: Is stack.imgur currently down? From the answers it seems that at the moment the images work for some users and don't work for others. $\endgroup$ Aug 9, 2018 at 19:18

    $\begingroup$ Do you use ad-blocking extensions? This could be due to an overzealous Privacy Badger, for instance. $\endgroup$ Aug 10, 2018 at 0:25
  • $\begingroup$ I now see it is a "local problem": I'm at a conference, and the university's unsecured guest wireless account disallows certain transactions that eduroam permits. $\endgroup$ Aug 10, 2018 at 18:14

    $\begingroup$ Joseph, there was a problem with the servers for a little while. It affected the entire network (people who use a custom profile picture (as opposed to Gravatar/Facebook/etc.) had their picture disappear for a short while). Any residual issues are due to caching, or as the old saying goes, you should blame caching. In any case, this certainly not about connection security (unless you happened to be on a very oddly configured network exactly during the downtime, in which case it would have been both issues). $\endgroup$
