    I have a feeling their server is based in India or something...probably dirt cheap and old.

    Sheesh Ernie, I'm having problems posting.. I'm on the edge of saying, "poops on this nightmare"..:laugh:

    Those were the golden years of posting here. Even though I was well disliked by the dominant forces, I sure had fun ruffling their feathers. I don't post enough to judge most present day staff members but I can say the ones I like, I really do like.

    Hell I like virtually all of the mods. I'm talking red ink here, Lumpster.

    Try running the site on firefox with BluHell Firewall. It solved all my problems, well except for the above.

    I would like to know the specs on that server, because this is the only site that I visit that hangs up and causes so much trouble...and on top of that, it makes my entire browser hang up if I have more than one tab open.

    I think it is time for a mod overhaul. Can't discuss why...that's too bad.

    Firefox and BluHell will fix it. It's not the server, it's the ads and scripts the site runs to try to generate a profit.

    Mods are fine. They need better upper management.

    Not sure about that. If they leave the site up to the mods...then whose fault is it. And their choice in mods absolutely baffles me...well, not really. They do well in maintaining the overall narrative of USMB.

    The mods don't sell ad space or choose software. All they do is referee out squabbles. ADMIN is where you should be bitching.

    Look for folks with red names. They are the only ones who can fix (or create) software problems.
