@11011110 The fact that I only see "Los Angeles Times: we are currently unavailable in your region" is somehow perfect.
@bremner Grr Balkanization of the web. The UC status page is still visible, at least, I hope.
@11011110 Yes, on second glance, the first mention of the LA Times URL also works, just not the one that masto put in a "preview box".
@bremner Oh good. I heard from someone else that the LA Times was making itself unavailable in Europe but I wouldn't think that should affect Canada.
