Without uBlock Origin I don't even bother coming here anymore, it's really that bad. With uBlock it's fine. I have often wondered why there are so many ads on this site, videos and all kinds of crap, I mean, there can't be a lot of people coming here.

Admin, the site is still impossibly ad-heavy, but seems to be better yesterday and today.

Of the dozens of sites that I regularly frequent, this is by far the slowest, just plain hard to use. But the last week or so it has been particularly worse. Sometimes I just give up and go elsewhere thinking maybe I will remember later on that I started the download and go there.

What is the deal? If itís just money or whatever it would in some way be comforting to understand how this happens.

Hello all,

We have pinpointed the issue to the slowness.
Once the patch is done, the techs will deploy the fix.
I do not have an ETA on this, but once I get an update, we'll give you a heads up here.

I have given up complaining

The site is a piece of junk, no other of the dozen of similar sites I visit have the constant delay

IF I were a first time visitor I would assume the site was dead or hosted on a server in someones parents basement and just leave

It feels like posts are down, and I wonder how many people just give up.

It honestly is faster right now

Funny, I typed that, hit send, and it froze.

A minute later it did go through though

Hello there,

It seems that the slowness descends overtime and will pick back right up after.
This is still being looked into by the techs.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Ed
