    Unable to Connect to tcp://www.gravatar.com:80. Error #110: Connection timed out

    I've gotten this error a lot in my error log ever since I started using XenForo (some time in January). I've never really thought anything of it, but I wouldn't mind if it didn't spam my error log a few times every day. Is there something specific that causes this? Such as a hosting issue? Thanks.

    It's most likely nothing to worry about, but you may want to check with your host to see if a firewall might be blocking that connection:

    As @Chris D stated, most likely nothing to worry about other than the Gravatar site being down again (and again, and again). It is one of the main reasons I don't use it on most of my sites. Unlikely it is being blocked.

    I'll check with my host. For now, I've just disabled gravatar. Thanks for both replies.
