Out of the Blue

Reader Fusman alerted me to what looks like an error I've been making in linking to stories on in an effort to avoid the problem I'm causing (oh the delicious irony!!). The site localizes links, and I thought that stripping out the regional part would make them work in all territories. Just to confirm this, I'd appreciate if a couple of readers outside of North America could confirm that this link is broken and this link works (and if it works, do the local parts of the URL ("us" and "en") change appropriately)?

Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez and Acleacius.
Play: TU-46.
Dibbles 2. Thanks Daniel.
Crazy Christmas.
Links: Rock of Ages- Everybody's Wiggin' Out. Thanks nin.
Austin Powers Gets A Musical Prequel.
Science: Arsenic in water near coal-fired US plants: monitor.
Images: My dad finally got his pilot's license today. He sent me this.
Media: Siri finds out Steve Jobs died.
Bearded Dragon playing Ant Crusher.
Dogs in Cars.
CD explodes at 23,000 rpm.
Auction: Bid For A Lunch With Mark Hamill In L.A.
The Funnies: xkcd: Plastic Bags.
Brain Rot: Nostalgic Memories of the NES.

Hey Blue...

Now that I'm ignoring one person... I have a feature request...

Could ignored people's avatars be hidden at the same time the post is 'filtered'? : )
