It is back working this morning and so the counter loaded BUT we have other stats which show 9 visitors within the last hour and none of those were logged on statcounter. I know for a fact those visitors do not have the counter blocked because two of them are website moderators. Therefore we are missing a lot of visitors being logged today. One moderator did note that the counter was not loading when he visited and I guess the lack of statcounter image meant he did not get logged. The counter not loading now and again for some ISPs means a lot of lost visitor data.
