    Anybody else noticing that GT has slowed to a crawl lately? I've been having significant page load times, sometimes over 5 minutes.. All other sites still load in a flash even during the wait for GNG to load up.

    Is there a server issue? :dunno:

    I have seen the same thing. Sometimes it is fast, other times, not so much.

    Probably the Israelis launching a new internet virus against Iran.

    I've noticed that a good 80% of the time loading a page is spent on sponsors.glocktalk.com, st.ohub.us, app.outdoorhub.com, ap.lijit.com, ad.doubleclick.net, ad.meld.com, etc.

    Yep, it's usually the ad servers.

    I'd reup my subscription in a nano-second if it meant getting rid of 100% of the ads. Now that it doesn't even get rid of the pop-up, no way.

    On my PC it's fairly fast.... but I don't see any ads.

    On my Droid, it's too slow but I just started using Ohub Campfire. Totally different look-and-feel, but on my phone I like the fact that it is WAY more responsive. Only loads 10 threads at a time, but loads the next 10 quickly.

    Sometimes it's slow loading. And as far as the ads: We get a great site here that I'm sure costs money to run. Most of the users are using it for free. What do you want? Eric to pay out of pocket so you don't have to see ads you don't pay attention to anyway? It's ridiculous to think that the people running this site shouldn't have a reasonable way to pay for it.

    Last few days, slow load up of internet sites. About the time of high usage of 5pm to 8pm my time. Lota porn users these days. :rofl:

    I was unable to get GT to load the home page on Internet Explorer yesterday and today. It seems pretty zippy on Chrome.

    I've got no issues with the ads. ABP takes care of the truck and the sidebars load last and don't bother me. Heck, I even click on them occasionally to redirect a few pennies into Eric's pocket. I was around during the growing pains Eric was going broke and GT was in danger of dying. I'm glad it's still here, still free, and Eric can afford fast toys.

    It's fast again now, but it intermittently hangs after loading the top banner and background image. Then VERY slowly populates the rest of the page from top to bottom. Like there's just too much load on the server or something.

    I agree, I'm just saying I'd gladly pay not to see them at all.

    Problem is, most won't pay. I pay the minimum but plan on upgrading. When I think of all the good I get out of this site, all the friends I've made and all the times I've gotten to make an ass of myself.... priceless! :supergrin:

    I know most won't, so they can see all the ads that can fit on the page.
