There is always something loading in the background. This page never fully loads and I have to stop it from loading manually

No idea - it must be one of the ads google is trying to serve you.

There's been some long stretches for me since last evening where the board is REALLY slow to load. Anyone else?

Uh, Tim, I'm pretty sure you're not aware, but a new ad pop up on this site is Warrior XII, an apparel company that specializes in some serious Alt-Right messaging shirts. I'm thinking this started the other day when someone in the Politics Thread showed some tweet of some Right wing crazy.

Thanks for the heads up. Not much I can do about it unless I turn off google ads, though.

Hahaha!!

Just a heads up, the ads are catered to your browsing history and the interests Google has deemed you have etc. Most of my ads are for cheap hipster golf balls, televisions and, this is weird, penis reduction surgery.

Admittedly this could just be something weird going on with my browser....but for 2-3 days now, NSBB has been signing me out overnight. Just curious if anyone else has had that happen.

I know I was the one pushing back on youtube embeds back in the day, but now I'm gonna request TikTok embeds. Because if you do it right, TikTok has a lot of good, fun stuff.

I suppose I should update from 3.1.7 one of these days. 3.3.4 is the current version. God knows how many I've skipped over the past, I don't know, 10 years or so.

Based on another PhpBB board I frequent that recently upgraded, and it's nice...

Last few days have seen some pretty invasive full-screen pop up ads (esp. on mobile) that are stubborn to close. Just a heads up

Third. They are actually easy enough to exit out, but it totally messes up the "go to last read" functionality, and then I end up at the top of every page. That's the most annoying part for me.

I got a pop-up ad for an ad blocker.

Very clever....

I have no right to complain about ads on a site where someone else pays for the upkeep but these ads are getting annoying. If there’s a way to get rid of these ads without hurting overall ad revenue I’d really appreciate it
