I signed up for this forum yesterday after Google-ing around for a decent iPad forum to post and read comments on. Even the sign up process was slow; I actually thought the page wasn't loading so tried signing in from a number of other browsers (Chrome, Opera, etc) on my PC with the same result. I eventually managed to sign up (obviously, otherwise I wouldn't be posted this, doh!).
I've found this forum to be ridiculously slow compared with every other site I've visited, including other forums. Every page takes 15-20 seconds to load as it loads ad content and even AdBlock Pro on Firefox does nothing to speed up the page loading as the content is still downloaded. As such it makes navigating the forum a chore and is really spoiling the experience for me. I have a fast 24 Mbps connection and everything else loads up pretty much instantly except for this forum.
Is there anything I can do to speed it up on my PC or is it the same for everyone else? The iPad Forum app doesn't seem to suffer from this problem when I tried it last night.
