Confirmed, Gravatar seems to be down for me, too. (Not SO's fault though) – Pëkka Nov 9 '11 at 11:50
I think it's gravatar's website is not working at all, not even pinging, all wordpress people who use gravatar have same problem :) wordpress.org/support/topic/gravatarcom-down – Val Nov 9 '11 at 11:51
@Val that linked topic is 6 years old :/ – Dunhamzzz Nov 9 '11 at 12:00
It's back... :) – Shadow Wizard Nov 9 '11 at 12:12
@Dunhamzzz that link was meant to show wordpress has the same problem with gravatars, :) – Val Nov 9 '11 at 12:16
....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.

I'm really really surprised they don't have any backup server! – Shadow Wizard Nov 9 '11 at 12:13
