What happened to this site? Is it truly the worst site on the internet the last few months. Whoever operates this site do you know how bad it is? It takes 1/2 hour for the site to load 15 minutes to change post to post and every post I have to sign in again because this site erases everything. I really did like G&A but anymore with the aggravation just to read posts you need half a day to do a 5 minute read and I just don't know if its worth it maybe when everyone gets as aggravated as me and quits someone running the site might get the hint but I really doubt it

    No problems here. Its not the site.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    I'd surmise that the problem is on your end, since neither I nor anyone I know is experiencing these problems...Perhaps one of our more technically inclined members could help you out...

    I have some of those same problems regularly. Its was explained to me that the op system on my phone/internet is different than the one used by the site. It was fellow members here that have that type of knowledge that gave me the heads up. In my case I assume its my refusal to embrace upgraded tech in a timely manor that continues the trials. YMMV..

    It can be frustrating. But its not insurmountable.

    Using a phone now and zero issues, iPad and laptop work fine. I don't have any of the issues being mentioning.

    It could be a software issue on your end or possibly malware. It doesn't seem to be affecting most folks on this site.
    Something you can try is to use someone else's device (desktop, laptop, iPad, phone) and their internet connection and see if the problem still exists.
    It could be a device issue (software or hardware) or it could be a problem with your service provider.

    Closed my browser, cleared my cache and came back on here. On average, per my stop watch, it's taking just over 2 seconds for each thread to load on my desktop.

    Pretty much what everyone else said.  Check with your ISP.  Maybe they can help.

    I was thinking this over and maybe you're getting stuck with a google ad that is not working/loading.  They are tailored to the person based on your search activity and other parameters so everyone gets different ones on the pages they load and sometimes you get a recurring buggy one that just sucks at loading if it loads at all.

    Don't know if you have an ad blocker but if you don't you should.

    Some of the Ads choke a couple of my devices.  I have to leave at least one device un-AdBlocked so I can see what’s going on on the site.

    Try an ad blocker and see if it helps

    I don't visit as often as i used to, but I am not having any issues as described.  Nearly 100% of my surfing is done on my android phone. Something in your equipment isn't playing nice with their equipment.  Frustrating as all hell, I'm sure.  Hope you get it figured out. 👍
