Is it me or has the website refresh gotten irritatingly sluggish as of late? I've been on a few different PCs, different times of day over past week... click a button & 5 seconds later something actually happens.
Mine is OK, such as it is. I live in a so called technically advanced country called America. I live in the country and the only high speed connection available is DSL. I pay for a 5 megabyte connection (most they offer) but the average speed is .72 megabyte download. The really irritating thing is that the provider (TDS) provides a speedometer that shows your speed. It tops out a 1 gig, so my .72 megabite hardly lifts the needle off its stop. They like to rub my nose in my third world connection.
I'm convinced its due to loading all the background advertising. With any refresh or hop to another sub-forum, I see my busy circle spinning, one by one the white boxes become populated with their respective ads. About 5+ seconds of this frozen state I finally get the opportunity to view a post or type a message. Irritating. How much does the off switch cost?
