Hi Steven,

Wierd stuff happens. <shrug />

I doubt it ... that would actually be very hard to do ... and there 
wouldn't be much point to it since no one is *required* to use their

All visible for me at your site here:

(I'm running a pretty 'vanilla' win2k box with IE5.5 ... nothing fancy.)

Don't be. You're not in any trouble. 

(Oh wait, you're not in mainland China are you? ... just kidding.)

I think you are going down a 'rabbit trail' here Steven. There may very 
well be a *technical* issue here somewhere ... perhaps a corrupted version 
of these graphic files sitting in the cache on your machine ... I'm not sure.

But it's very likely to be coincidence -- not censorship that these are the pictures you are having issue with.  Try accessing your site from a library 
- or a friend's machine.  I think you'll see that it comes up okay.  It smells 
more like a technical issue with your box.
