    No problems here in Ottawa using Safari on iOS. The only slow behaviour I sometimes witness is the time is takes for a post to be posted. 30 seconds at times. That to me is a server issue.

    @GCAdmin1 please delete the political sub forum and all this mess should straighten itself out

    Haven't seen any sign that you're expert in anything but this makes it clear that web site operation isn't a strong suit for you.

    If you're so offended by it why did you join it and why do you keep visiting it?

    Just as I've suspected all along, not a person but a simple and silly computer program posting your messages. Do you post here as Player99 too?

    You've been running a long time... I planned my life around your advice in the mid 1980s. Turned out well thanks.

    stick to working the political glory holes, at your age I doubt you can stretch the necessary amount to troll respectfully

    Wish I could help. But these are server side issues. They need to look at the load and server its on and decide what to do.

    You said it yourself, you ran this site on a dedicated server. I was shocked to hear it's running on shared hosting. If it weren't for the fact that this site collects membership money, I wouldn't really be complaining about it. But if you have are taking membership money, then you should provide a reasonable service. Under that circumstance, people complaining about it is perfectly warranted.

    Agreed 100%. My thought was when I started that was to provide the best service possible. That's why I paid the extra cash to have it run 1000 times faster then it needed to. It was overkill but that's the way my brain thinks. I was afraid of this, but hopefully they will change some things and get it back to where it needs to be.

    20 to 30 second screen changes this morning. Only on this site. All other sites are instant for me.

    Extremely slow this morning. I will be thinking seriously about not renewing my membership when the time comes. This issue has been ongoing for far too long.

    Problems would be one thing. Not acknowledging they exist and doing nothing to fix them is another. It's a big fuck you at the supporting members.
