    You would've gotten this before. It's not really unexpected for it to happen randomly - it just means that your server couldn't connect to Gravatar. It might just indicate that Gravatar was down or that your server had a minor connection issue with Gravatar. It doesn't break anything. The error is logged for the cases where it happens all the time (such as outbound connections being blocked).
