    I meant if that speeds up page loading.

    Yes. At least for me.

    However, just in this "Tech Support, General Q&A, Site Feedback & More" forum when I go to view a thread page there are two additional ad lookups although nothing displays:

    Very slow for me this morning, but not every time. I'd say 2 or 3 out of 5 page loads, it just hangs for about 25-30 seconds, then loads fairly quickly.

    You might need to give your PC a warm bath with Lavender oil so it can relax. :p

    Sorry Charlie, only just seen this :)

    It's taken a lot of self-restraint not to set about my PC with a large hammer! :D

    I've also encountered noticeable delayed page loads at times and definitely did not before the ad banners restarted on BF in early January.

    There are two additional scripts running on each page now although they don't display anything:

    • Quantserve (demographic and traffic stats)
    • Doubleclick (ad technology)
