It too almost ten minutes just to get "add a new post" to come up and then when it did, I was typing and the cursor wouldn't move at all and then when it did, it blipped the page off the screen and came back blank. It does this all of the time. There are alot of ads on this board and it is causing the boards to stay slow and irratic and I have noticed that it also causes the board to just blip off the page and then show the message "not responding". If you have other open windows, it will keep blipping back to them. And then while I am typing, the whole thing just reezes.

This problem has been going on here for the last couple of months. It has gotten worse in the lst month. It has taken me exactly 15 minutes to get this typed and posted because the curser keeps freezing. If you make a typo and want to go back and correct it, it might take even longer because the curser won't come up and move without going all spastic and and then trembling with the message "not responding" again. I understand the ads but they are killing this board because the techs can't seem to have both a good board to post on and the ads. They might just be better off making this an ad board instead of causing all of this trouble because of it. It is now 25 minutes because I had to correct a typo and since the cursor disappeared for a few minutes, it took ahwile to hit the post button. I really think that this is discouraging posters from coming her. Nothing should take this long to do.

Well, I thought I would grow old and die before this page loaded... Thanks everyone for your input and observations about this site. I'm glad I'm not the only one with this issue.

This site is full of adaware, malware and spyware. The company I work for has added this site to their blocked list so that nobody can get to it and infect their computers.

This is one of the worst sites I have encountered for ads. But I like this site so I deal with it. I discovered that the SeaMonkey browser (by the same Mozilla folks that do Firefox) seems to handle the ads better. BUT the best thing I've found is Adblock Plus, an add-on tool that works in Firefox and SeaMonkey. Not sure about Chrome and Internet Explorer as I don't use those browsers. Adblock blocks those annoying and noisy auto-playing ads.

Thankfully I don't have the problem with pages loading, refreshing, etc.

I agree with the above poster. I was having problems, and switched to Chrome. Problem solved.

Quote Gideon58:

Sometimes it takes me as long as an hour and 15 minutes to watch a 37-minute episode of the show with all the stopping, starting, and endless commercials.

What's the point of watching the show online if it takes longer than watching it live?

I stumbled on a comment in the comments after the recaps section that I wanted to add to this thread. The poster commented that if you keep your cursor on the left side of the screen (and away from where the noisy, annoying ads live on the right side) that it helps avoid them. Hope that helps someone :)
