    cant we split up some of the old threads so you can still discuss things in them without all the delays?

    Hmmm, they aren't slow for me, but....

    Well, I guess that would confirm the conspiracy against you, in your head.

    You believe that your access to this site was being denied when you couldn't read posts you made.

    It was a conspiracy against you.

    Now you know.

    And, I have zero threads that are slow to load. Just more proof that folks are picking on you for a reason, too.

    :lol:

    The only thing slowing the threads down is TM posting her bullshit.

    Old threads are slow because patience is a virtue, and threadettes like it when a man takes his time.

    Maybe because there is too much information to load?

    wouldnt it be better to allow new threads on new subjects instead of packing them all in one?

    TM, There are potentially a few different basic reasons you're experiencing this, the primary one being your internet connection is sloooooow. If this is a new experience then we can move on from there.

    Maybe the old threads are put into some form of compressed archive, to free up bandwidth for the newer threads. Then if you try to look at a zombie thread, it takes a while to reopen itself.

    Just a guess.
