A couple of sites are really slow at loading pages at the moment. Pcworld and are the examples. Waiting for the pages, it says - connecting to

Just done a search on it but found very little. What is ?

That "affiliates" thread is what I found when I searched last night. Wasn't quite sure what it was, but looks like advertising or money making of some sort.

Just blocked in firefox & the pages now load quickly again.
