Re: DS running slow for anyone but me

Everytime I load the page, it stalls out looking for "fortheloveoffluff.com". That site is down. So my browser is waiting to timeout looking for that site before it loads the whole page.

Maybe that is why adblocker is fixing the problem? -because it is keeping that site from trying to load.

ETA:

Yep- I installed Adblocker and added fortheloveoffluff.com to the list to block. As soon as I did that, everything works fine.

OK. I just downloaded firefox and Ad Blocker Plus and I am running fast again. I am leary of software that is free though - can someone help me understand that?

Re: DS running slow for anyone but me

I am now using firefox and I downloaded adblocker plus, and it is still super slow for me. I'm still getting "looking for www.fortheloveoffluff.com" on the bottom of every page.

WHERE is admin? At least tell us they are aware of the problem and trying to fix it, instead of leaving us all here trying to install new software on our computer just so we can log in here. I wouldn't bother but I need to respond to pms - which took me 40 MINUTES this morning.

Makes me think admin or whoever is in charge here doesn't really care if the site users are happy or not.

Go try it mamas! It is all those ads that are slowing the loading of the pages down!
I have no idea but maybe this will work for some but not all? I only use Mozilla and have Ad Blocker and it's been like this for going on three days with no problems on any other site. I'm not kidding, it's like having dial up again that I don't bother anymore. I got on here SPECIFICALLY to see this thread and it's taken me 12 minutes to get this far to post. I don't have to log in because it's cookied to open right up, but it opens to the main page, I chose Forums, I clicked on the title of this thread from the Forums listing, and read through, hit reply... and it's taken that long. And after this posts... I'm leaving DS for the day. Hopefully it'll be back to normal soon. I don't have time to sit here for 12 minutes a thread, kwim? Done ranting.

But, on a lighter note... I'm sure everyone that can do something is doing something. So I pledge my patience.

Re: DS running slow for anyone but me

I just wanted to add that obviously the admin needs to figure out what is causing the site to lag.

Why hasn't a representative for the site responded to or created a thread addressing this issue? Or, if they have, can someone direct me to the comments, please, so I can see what's going on?

Same here. Now DS is going super fast again. And a plus is I don't have to see all those stupid ads!
