Confirmed, Gravatar seems to be down for me, too. (Not SO's fault though) –  Pëkka Nov 9 '11 at 11:50

....6 years ago. Also FYI Gravatar is owned by the people behind WP. –  Dunhamzzz Nov 9 '11 at 12:28

This is because the CDN that Gravatar uses is down.

Notably, this has also affected WordPress.org and imgur.com - there are probably others.

This will be sorted when the server admins wake up.
