    Pathetic

    The site is so stuffed with info stealing ads/banners/facebook links/like buttons/etc. that it will barely load on my end lately.

    Most pages are loading 20 to 25 entries/widgets, while one page this morning loaded 49 entries/widgets before it would let me read the last post on the page !



    I do not see the ads as I have them blocked, but, until the site can load them up I can not scroll or read any new posts to the page, the page jerks up and down with me fighting the ads for control of the page.

    I feel real bad for those on a slower connection than mine, and anyone on DSL must be about ready to pull their hair out !






    You guys are really screwing up a good site, but, keep shoving those ads in ...

    OT,
    I have no issues nor any ads or other internet garbage on my end. I mean NOTHING at all. Can I suggest you down load CCleaner ( https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard ) and Super Anti Spyware ( SUPERAntiSpyware - AntiAdware. AntiSpyware. AntiMalware. ). They are both free and will/should eliminate all if not most of the crap on your PC. I run them both all of the time and this forum loads quick and with no issues as do other forums I am on.

    I switched over to Firefox and still having the cookies and redirecting issue. It says the site wants to redirect me too many times.

    I use Linux O.S. with Firefox. It actually came with Firefox. I've also added CCleaner and Ad Blocker +. Every site is clean with this combination.
    I had an auto message from one site (don't remember which) that gave me a hard time about blocking their ads. I just clicked away from them.

    Well I do use Google, Firefox, Aviator and if I really want to be left alone I use TOR Browser with Start Page as my home site. I do not have any cookie issues at all. No redirect or advertisements. The only time I do have a few popups is when I am reading news articles through various sources.

    Is this the only site you have issues with?

    CCleaner (originally named Crap Cleaner before becoming respectable) is a good tool for removing cookies and junk... Might also be a good idea to run MalwareBytes every once in a while, too...

    What browser are you using? I hope it's not Internet Explorer... I've used FireFox for years and it works well...

    It is just this site and one other that actually have more ads than this place.

    I built this machine and used the best and fastest parts I could afford at that time, 2.5 gig processor/8G ram/Win7/Firefox. I run 4 real-time protection apps (MWB is one of them), and dump files/cookies daily.


    Site ran fine on my end until the new owners stuffed it full of ads and facebook garbage, I am on a slow connection and it can not load all of the crap that they are shovin at me.


    I know this is not a gathering place for them it is a revenue machine, but think about the poor guys/gals on a slow connection ... Not everyone can afford fiber or xfinity top tier speeds ...

    Sometimes running multiple instances of different real time protection apps can cause issues... they fight each other...

    I keep offering suggestions because I don't see any of the issues you are talking about...

    I don't have the issues you're running into either and I'm just using Microsoft Edge without any ad blockers. Something else is definitely up.

    If you are comfortable editing your hosts file, check out http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.txt I've used this method with great success in the past. It redirects the ad company links back to your local machine. Keeps adds from loading.

    Thnkx for the suggestions, (I have edited my host file before I will try this), had Comcast out twice this week checking my connection, everything looks ok herre.

    I participate in 6 boards daily and this is the only one doing it.

    This script just locked the site up for me :

    PHP Code:
    http://secure-ds.serving-sys.c…urstingScript/SZMKFLVPAIDBR.js:28 
    It keeps trying to load an ad and I have them blocked so we are fighting for control of the page ...

    My mozilla browser gets hung up with a message, "waiting for ds.serving-sys.com".
    What is ds.serving-sys.com and how do I make sure this gets removed from my computer?

    ds.serving-sys.com is some kind of ad server. Downloading ad block add-on to Firefox and banning this server there will resolve the issue according to the Firefox forums.
    ... Just sayin ...
