I never use an iPad for it, but this site is the reason I installed an ad blocker. I had a terrible time at first--ridiculous with the ads! It got better after I paid for the membership, but still not cured. Several posters told me it was my computer, that I had malware, surfed for too much porn, etc.
One of the admins pointed something out though, if you browse without logging in, the ads seems to be WAY worse (that's not how he phrased it lol). I started logging in and the pages load much faster, even without a pop up blocker. The memory usage quit creeping up (for instance, leaving the browser open over night would result in a molasses computer in the morning, with the browser eating up tons of RAM, but only if I left a Lotustalk tab open).
So, make sure you are logging in! I'd wager that many set it to automatically login and forget what the site is like without logging in.
