    I am just going to assume that no one running the site gives a shit about this at this point.

    The site is still sporadic. Doesn't matter what you are doing, logging in, liking a post, making a post. Some days it takes a millisecond and an hour later it's crap. Whether I am on my phone or my 2 desktops, the consistency sucks. It isn't anything to do with cookies. It is something wrong with the site itself. This post started in March? Were almost into June!

    It shouldn't be for 15 bucks a year. I am paying for a service that is crap. I have the right to bitch about it

    This is kind of ridiculous. I agree, if you're not paying, you shouldn't bitch. But some of us are paying and clearly nothing significant is being done to address this. So the solution is pretty simple; fix the site (even if it costs you more than you want to pay). Or refund all of our memberships, open up the classifieds to everyone, and feed us ads to cover your costs. This middle ground where we're subscription based for some but not doing shit about the performance issues is getting old.

    It is worse than ever this morning. I have tried from two different IP addresses, one on Shaw, one on Telus, four different computers, several browsers. This is not a client issue.

    Almost unusable for the past 24 hours, very long load times, tons of double posts, etc.

    It's back to almost normal for me now. It's pretty obvious that a few complaints causes something to be reset by the powers that be. We need a permanent fix not a wait until it breaks then reset.

    Unfortunately, my recent experience with the GC forum is:
    " The Thrill is Gone"

    I'll be taking a 10 day break for a vacation to Nova Scotia.
    Admittedly, maybe I just spend too much time here in the GC Forum.

    What I don't understand is why admin is risking the fact so many paying members might just leave or decide not to purchase Gold Memberships.

    2000 (pulled this number from a hat) paying members @ $15.00 each is $30,ooo !! Along with membership fees is the revenue from advertising. In total, not a huge amount of money in the corporate world but revenue is revenue. Is my thinking and assessment not logical?

    Ditto here, tried many ways from several locations, getting the same problem everywhere. Not only are the long delays frustrating, there is a high incidence of double-posts and double-post corrections that are likely fallout from the system taking so long to respond.

    I figgered for a while that the system was just getting overwhelmed with all the trolling posts by @vadsy but maybe something more is wrong.

    @GCAdmin1 fix please!!!
