    Forum Soooo Slooooooow. Is it worth posting any more?

    This is just punishing, guys. Almost ready to call it quits for the most part unless they can pep up the RBR hamsters.

    Srsly, I have no nostalgia for the 28.8k modem days... so why is RBR so hell-bent on bringing 'em back?

    Admins, do sumthin', feed the hamster. Yeeesh.

    During the outtage, I logged out on my phone. Now it is impossible to log back in. I can do the damned million recaptchas, but the login button breaks (works before captcha) after you complete the captchas.

    I can't attest for any latency issues. RBR still says I'm banned.

    I hacked into the security cam in RBR's internet data center.

    Here's their brand new web server. You can clearly see the new placard beside the keyboard, a warning to system administrators to not press the BAN EVERYONE button (again).

    I used one of those back in the day. That is when a "patch" was a real physical thing

    It was definitely much slower for me today when I first logged on. And that's on top of the "already slower" from last week.

    load speeds are now uber-crappy for me.

    no other site takes as long as this one.

    Same problem but only on mobile, I use the browser and full site and it's fine
