You can write a userscript that retrieves user_type from Stack Exchange API and hides the post if the type is "unregistered". Regarding questions, a few large sites block questions from unregistered users already. You can make a case that another site should do the same by raising the issue on that site's meta: for example, Let's require registration ...

It depends on a certain timeline item type rendering a date block which had an errant translation in there. I've manually corrected the bad entry for now and we'll look at how to guard against it happening later - it shouldn't be allowed to happen but here we are so we'll look at improving that. For the curious, it was ultimately calling .Day instead of ....

We send some read-only traffic to one of our secondary SQL Servers. It got a bit unhappy with lots of queries trying to hit it and we ended up with some blocking on the server.

One of the great things about Stack Exchange is that bad content is usually quickly hidden or even deleted. That'...

This seems to have been realized with the network ('global') profile and the 'Top Network Posts' widget on the bottom left of each profile page, e.g. https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/131515/robinicks: There's a link at the bottom which leads to the network profile, which gives a longer overview of the top questions and answers. The top posts of the ...

So... this looks like it was actually caused by the same server outage that was making it so that image resizing wasn't working as it should. So, when that was fixed, this was also fixed... YAY! Uploading a gif now should behave as expected. I briefly uploaded the same gif from that user's profile to my own and it became a static image. If you want to check ...
