Some of you may be wondering why my DA Icon/Avatar/ID thumbnail isn't loading. Actually, it did--I uploaded an image of a broken/nonloading image. Ever since I became a DA user over 10 years ago, that has always been my icon--a non-loading image (my original non-loading image had the "red x" mark, with the words "The Story of My Life" written below it, but now I've opted for something simpler and perhaps more misleading LOL). Reason is because the 'net infrastructure in my country is not very good outside the big cities, and thus broken links, non-loading images are common. The second reason is, sometimes the proxy servers of the internet services here actually practice a form of censorship of certain DNS names, and thus images fail to load. I guess my icon also serves as my little protest sign against censorship on the web.
