I'm sorry FE, but the continual slowdowns in loading pages is making the site unusable. It's a pity, as there are lots of knowlegeable people out there who want to help, but they (like me) will be reluctant because everything is SO SLOW.
I agree> The time being taken to load a Forum page is excessive. I have given up at least once today, but may well leave a couple of days before re-trying. One of the things that annoys me about using IE9 is that there are no bars to show you if anything is happening, exacerbating the problem as to whether - or not - something is being loaded!
The assurances given about the 'tweaking' of the site to improve the many shortcomings seem to have little basis given the reaction time being experienced today. It really is not functional compared to others and the 'old' version - which did fail occasionally; but not consistently. Every action from gaining access to viewing to posting takes forever.
