justmike is on a distinguished road

Using Safari (on a Mac) I can see the network timeline for a page. Using that I found that it was (IIRC), a javascript loaded from w w, I think for the new little petition window at the bottom.

Anyway, I got rid of it by adding an entry to /etc/hosts (on Windows I think it's at C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\) mapping w w to, so it just can't load. Complete page load times went from about 1 minute back to ~2 seconds.


p.s. Remove space from "w w w" above. I'm still too noob to be allowed to post anything that looks like URL.
