Flat protocol broken?

I've just discovered that I can't get any challenges anymore in my LJ client. I get an error response saying that I did not specify a mode. But until ten minutes ago, everything was working fine...


I've telnetted to the server to double-check the issue. Here's what I get:

telnet www.livejournal.com 80

As you can see, I do supply the mode-parameter, but for some reason it doesn't get picked up.

What gives?
