Why is Gamespot displaying like this?


Recommended Posts

I'm usually pretty good at figuring this stuff out, but I'm at a loss, here.


On my desktop PC, when I got to http://www.gamespot.com, it looks like this:




No other web site I visit have any issues, and if I access it from my laptop on the same internet connection, it looks fine. It looks like it's not doing Javascript or something, but it's all turned on, as near as I can tell.


Any ideas? I'm :bang:

I bet your desktop PC is blocking image.com.com. That's where the CSS file that defines the font style and where most of the site's images reside. The only images I see displaying on your screenshot are hosted at img.gamespot.com.


What happens if you try to load this image directly on your computer?


If I had to guess, I'd say it's one of the following possiblities:


1) you're running a software firewall (like Norton Personal Firewall) that thinks image.com.com is an ad server

2) you have image.com.com blocked in your HOSTS file

3) you're running ad blocker software

Joel, this happened to me a long time ago, and I was unable to figure out how to fix it, and i even emailed Gamespot. I think it must have just resolved itself because i havent had that error in sometime. (or i believe my hard drive crashed at that time so that was probably it.

Joel, I think you may want to read this. It's looks like someone was writing about you over at iVillage.


Lookie here!










Your a good sport Joel!

Ask him how he would feel if you watched porn the way he did?


BOING! :tu:



That's not me, baby. I can stop anytime I want. ;)

Hrm. I wondered about that. I thought I'd only installed KazaaLite at one time...

that'll do it. go to your host file and remove the image.com.com line. [/b]

Already done. :)
