Has forum been acting up for others too?

this past week the forum has been tough to use for me. When I submit a post it takes a long time to post, sometimes posting it twice or 3 times.

Refreshing the front page sometimes takes 4 minutes. It happens on my PC and my tablet.

Anyone else seeing this problem?

Of the forums I view, this one is the absolute worst for stability. A lot of it has to do with the ads and the technology contained in them. My antivirus will not allow some of them and that can lock the forum out until the offending tools are not being used.

Yes. A couple of pages load at a normal rate then poof, the little circle turns & turns and the requested page does or does not load. Reply box sent me to the internet limbo a couple of times. I have tried both on Chrome and IE and there is no difference.

Yes, I have seen this on both my iPad and my work laptop. It sometimes takes forever to load a page

Yes. Mostly the last day or so, worse on my laptop than my iPad. I thought it might have been my Internet service. It took forever to edit a post I did last night.

Just happened to me - I tried to post and it took forever, then told me I had to wait 20 seconds between post (even though I'd only submitted the one post).
