I read the Washington Post online every day, and this seems to have only occurred today, definitely within the last 24-48 hours.

The images for all "Local News" are missing from https://www.washingtonpost.com/regional/, and they appear when I disable EasyPrivacy:

So I used Inspect, and it seems to be that allowing exceptions to "/spacer.gif?" rule (see below) allows those images to appear while EasyPrivacy is active.

Oddly enough, I can't find "spacer.gif" in the source code for those images, but adding an exception just for those two blocked requests in the above screen shot fixed it:

EasyPrivacy rule

Code: Select all

||nile.works^$third-party
blocks the comments API on the Washington Post website, so no comments can be viewed. I added the line

Code: Select all

@@||comments-api.ext.nile.works/$document
to my custom filter list and comments are working again!

I tried adding exceptions via the Inspect pane, but there were a lot. This one line seems to have fixed all the comment issues. Otherwise, I had exceptions like this in my custom filter list:

Code: Select all
