I think it's some of these ads. They are causing very slow loading and now, regular crashes.

I know people have to pay the bills, but if I keep getting these crashes I will end up abandoning the site. Some limitation on the ads should be considered. The tricky animation and graphics takes up too much memory and therefore takes an age to load.

The crashes cause lost time in running precautionary virus programs and rebooting.

At a computer.
Some limitations should be looked into. There's more ads here then the "other" place. We know the server eats up more $$ then a ants on a sugar cube. Maybe get more sponsors or something I've seen an other mboard, a section where users can pay to have their own sub-forum and moderate it.

I do that with FF. Not with Chrome where I check the site now and then and see what ads are there. Actually clicked on one the other day. The fans on the computer do sound like a jet on some of the ads that uses scripting.

One caveat with Adblock though, there is a plug-in at vB.org that can limit the viewing to browsers that have the plug in. Another mboard I visit installed that, but yanked it after a short time due to a 30 page thread of members griping about it and it having bugs, sometimes limiting views even on a browser that doesn't have Adblock installed.

One thing though, you could use Adblock to find the ad that's really causing the issue and do a process of elimination thing. After finding the culprit ad, report it to Scott.
