Wow! I can see this Stack Exchange Imgur image (from this Q) from within China (no VPN, proxy, etc.):

It looks like this was temporary---sometimes blocked sites temporarily work. I now cannot images to download.

While there's still no ping response from imgur.com:

becky@becky-Inspiron-5379:~$ ping imgur.com
PING imgur.com (31.13.69.160) 56(84) bytes of data.

Let's verify...

ViewDNS.info:

Chinese firewall test results for i.stack.imgur.com.cdn.cloudflare.net ...

All servers were able to reach your site. This means that your site should be accessible from within mainland China.


(Related Q: If I wanted to include a picture and have it be visible when in China, what are my options?)

Yeah, it's blocked.


Apparently you can play with your hosts file and get around it though: How do I access a banned Imgur site?
