I have ad blocker too, so that well may be the answer why neither of us have had problems?

I use an ad blocker, too - two, in fact - and it's faster today for me than it has been lately.

It was running slow. I was playing a row of solitaire while I waited for pages to load. Faster today. Pictures are resizing properly today too.

Slow here also. But it is starting to speed up a little. I need to have Spike put in an ad blocker.

Hey guys. It's getting worse. What's going on? I don't have this issue on other sites.

Strange. It's okay here. Has been all day. I just clicked around to various forums, and it's consistently about 2.5 second from click to loaded with AdBlocker in place.

I've been following along on this thread, but haven't had any issues myself. In fact, it's been as speedy as ever. I just ran a timer on it and most pages seem to be coming up in less than 2 seconds. The last one came up in 6/10 of a second.

Could it be ad rendering that's causing the problem? I'm using ad blocker software, so I don't see ads. On another site I frequent, they recently had an issue with ads bringing the site to a screeching halt. The pages would start to load and then just sort of stop for a minute or more when it hit an embedded ad. The page would eventually come up, but it took forever. I don't know what was done to fix it, but my assumption is they tweaked or replaced the ad software.

I haven't noticed any problems. I have AdBlocker, use Chrome, a 2 year old Dell laptop.

I use Ad Blocker Plus on Firefox and have never seen an ad on this site since. If they are still mucking things up behind the scenes, I cannot say.

I'm not a computer whiz but... I would think an advertisement or pop up blocker would use a computer's resources in order to work.
I can understand the statements made on how one never sees an ad because they use an ad blocker.
I cannot understand the statements made on how ad blockers speed up a page loading.

Anyway, sometimes a page takes a while to load and sometimes it doesn't.
And sometimes I still get that commercial trying to vocalize and sometimes I don't, but my blockers always turn it off after a few noisy words are spoken.
And sometimes I can see the Thanks button and sometimes it's a red X like I posted a pic of.
And of course I still get "compatability issue' and the page reloads every now and then.

DC is glitchy for me, too, but not to the point I would say it's slow.
Unless you are talking about the post count, lol.
