    I noticed slower operation as well. Forum may have implemented more monitoring program without letting the members know.

    the site has a melt-down, people are banned and blocked from logging in, and now page loads are ridiculously slow.

    and the owners can't be bothered to issue any kind of explanation....?
    I expect the owners are busy issuing refund checks for all the members.

    If I'm not mistaken, those timely and informative posts eventually morphed into the Chinese Carbon thread, sans the sans-clothes Chinese girls of course.

    They're paying me in bitcoin. They said their "ship is coming in" soon and I'll receive payment when it does. Or I can choose to have 3 months free RBR forums instead.

    No, that would eat CPU cycles...not effect page loading time that much.

    Ghostery ATM only shows the usual cross-site-scripting dataminers being loaded on the page.

    I actually like that RBR is much slower now.

    As I wait to see my witty replies posted, it gives me time to think about all the life decisions I've made that have gotten me to this point

    This poor cheetah got caught in the RBR slow-field...

    I don't mind the slow motion as long as it's smooth. I just can't stand the stop-n-go type.

    I find it to be nostalgic. The only thing missing is the scree-scraw-meepmeep sound of a 28.8 modem attempting to make a connection.

    Or starting a HUGE download (almost 1 Meg!!)... only to come back a few hours later to check on it and see that it stopped halfway through, after tying up your phone line for 2 hours.

    I think each day the forum software gets slower than previous day.

    I still can't login on mobile either. I've tried both the mobile site and the full site to no effect.
    Maybe other people can't, and that's why there's less posting (mostly frivolous posting, thankfully).

    Or saw the message "you have been banned" and said, %#!* you and joined another forum.

    Is there a solution to this? At the server, or on my device?
