Question WI Third Party Advertisements Causing Slow Page Loading?

Hi! I'm noticing that it's taking longer and longer to load WI pages. Sometimes if I get tired of waiting and close before it completely loads, IE errors out and shuts down completely. Is this because of the more aggressive ads? I've noticed more that have audio (really annoying, by the way), and flash or activeX take even longer than normal to load.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem? And is there a way to disable the ads and yet still be able to access the site?

From our experience, Internet Explorer does not like this site *at all.* Lol.
Most of us now use FireFox (which I'm on now) or Safari or Chrome.
Changing your browser just for this site, should help you alot.

It seems like the pages load faster when the ads just image/links, but when they're got an animation in them it feels like forever. I've used FireFox, but I like IE better. And yes, I've heard all about FF being better! LOL! I just prefer IE!

Is there a way to turn the ads off without losing site access?

OK, I'm in FireFox now. I tried to get to subscribed threads in IE and got that lovely ad that makes the ding and it completely locked IE. It's very frustrating IE works fine for everything else, why is there a problem with this site?

Justin - we were posting at the same time...premium subscription...I've heard mention of it I think on the home page. Sounds interesting with the extra features. Have you put out any information on it yet?

I've noticed that if you switch to the blue colors skin, it loads a little quicker, at least on my computer. There seems to be fewer images to load. You can't access your profile messages on this skin though.
