Can someone update FAQ210 to include l-userpic.livejournal.com as a URL to allow under Filtering Software and HOSTS File?

# No Stylesheet or Images: If LiveJournal pages have lost all their formatting, then the CSS stylesheet did not load.

* Browser Cache: Refresh the page to see if the page displays properly. If it does not reload correctly, try clearing your browser cache.

* Filtering Software: Ensure that your browser, any adblockers, or other filtering software allow pages to load from livejournal.com and all its subdomains (particularly l-stat.livejournal.com, l-userpic.livejournal.com and pics.livejournal.com).

* HOSTS file: Other programs may have altered your system's configuration files to block access to l-stat.livejournal.com, l-userpic.livejournal.com and pics.livejournal.com. Many operating systems have a HOSTS file, which can block access to defined sites. You may wish to use your favorite search engine to find instructions on how to check and edit your HOSTS file.

This is an FAQ we're using a lot more in Userpics, and it would be nice not to have to add the userpics URL in our answers everytime we use that FAQ. Thanks!
