I've been here a long time and have always enjoyed the forum, but since your implementation of advertising the site has become harder and harder for to put up with. As a good soldier I've had ad blocking disabled on this site all along, but your the current structure of the advertising just makes it tough for us: Page transitions can be VERY slow. Page reloads can take literally MINUTES to complete. Right now, it is very difficult to type in this thread. Typing is slow and the appearance of the text as I'm typing is even slower. "Mark Forums Read" (all forums) often takes at least two tries to complete successfully Database errors occur more frequently. I can click on "Home" and go to a different tab in Firefox, and when I return to the TCF minutes later (or longer) the page is still reloading. I understand you want to make money here, but please - take your loyal, long time user base into consideration.
