So I understand the need for ads to pay the bills, but oh my god, they are horrible. My brand new computer (i7/8GB RAM) slows to a crawl when I load this page. I had to enable ABP to be able to browse.

When you combine the ads with the fact that image sizes arent constrained, it really makes for a poor browsing experience.

My computer, a high dollar i7 HP Spectre 1 yr old, runs just fine. Stop being a little *****.

I was thinking of offering some hosting if the bandwidth isn't bad and or help upgrading the site but, really that's not my forte, i'm not a web coder.

I would like to say GREAT WORK! I've noticed the site tend to remember me now instead of having to login in every 5 minutes!!!

EDIT: Ad Block Plus is a slow fat pig, get U Block Origin, it's much lighter than ABP.

This place is owned by some corporation who bought out the real org Internet Brands or some ****. To them I'm sure that this forum is nothing but a place where ads show up.

For sure. And the response above is why I now use Ad Blocker unabashedly.
