It's agonizingly slow even to open a thread. The rest of the internet seems to be working fine for me; it's just this site.

It's going well enough for me and my internet can be as slow as a week in jail.

Isn't there a way that moderators can slow the site down for irritating posters? I'm sure that nobody would do that intentionally, but is it possible that it happened accidentally? It does seem rather a longshot, though.

It's really, really annoying. Could it be that my computer has a problem with this site in particular? I'll try logging in from another PC in a bit. (I've already tried a different browser; it makes no difference.)

Maybe I won't need to since it seems to be getting better. Fingers crossed...

I did take still some time for me to exit this thread... though it worked OK to come back in. Hmm...

It isn't working any better from the other PC. Indeed, even before logging in, it took over a minute to merely access the site. Then I entered my username and password, and it's still loading as I write this.

Perhaps I managed to deeply offend a religious mod.

I wish this would stop!

It continues.

It seems to be getting better at times.

The site had occasionally slowed down for me before, but never to such a point for such a long time. It seems back to normal today, though, at last.

I was going to suggest visiting the site from another browser where you weren't logged in to see if it made a difference.

Has the layout of the site changed for everyone, or is it just me? The lists of staff and members online etc., which used to be on the right-hand side, are now at the bottom.

Laptop. They were always on the side, until last night.

Maybe I clicked something by accident to make it change. But if so, what?
