Net Nanny Follies

Photo-sharing website Flickr.com seems to have been attacked by the Net Nanny.
Although it is still possible to load the website and even to log on and upload photos, the Nanny is using some type of filtering technology that stops uploaded images from loading.
This may be a consequence of the use of Flickr.com by participants of the anti-PX demonstrations in Xiamen last week.
