    I noticed that images from i.imgur.com will no longer load on my device. I poked around a little and it looks like the DNS response from that domain being re-written in the boost/sprint network and corrupted.

    Does anyone know if this is being done on purpose in order to block the domain? I wonder if it is fallout from that recent horrible net neutrality court decision.

    It wouldn't be from that, companies haven't started to make changes to that new ruling yet. I would update your profile and see if that changes anything.

    I updated the profile and, as expected it made no difference. Boost/Sprint still appears to be blocking i.imgur.com in my area.

    It makes me wonder what other websites and services they are interfering with.

    This particular issue spontaneously cleared itself up after a day or two with no action taken by me. Wierd.
