    When someone posts an image in a comment, they're being replaced with a small icon of an image with a red cross over it:

    This is probably due to the MacRumors website moving over to HTTPS, and it using "proxy.php" to get that image (to avoid mixed content warnings, privacy concerns, too large or malicious images, and not wanting to DDOS the source server).

    But it doesn't seem to be working.

    It would be nice if the image could also link back to the source. So if the image didn't load, someone could click on it, and request it directly... in this case, that would be:

    hmm... wasn't working and now it is. Are you seeing this with other images too?
