The issue is simple.
When I navigate to: Why do pages not load in any browser after updating Ubuntu 12.04?
I can load it as expected.
When I toggle on Opera's built in VPN I get: Page Not Found We're sorry, we couldn't find the page you requested.
My external IP address when connected to the VPN is: 188.8.131.52
Can we get this whitelisted or is it working as intended?
Opera info: 40.0.2308.62 - Opera is up to date

EDIT: Funny enough - meta.askubuntu.com loads just fine. Looks like it's just askubuntu.com pages that don't work.
