This is almost as bad as the dial-up IPS we had in the early 90s. Until the sailnet people find a solution to this problem, I simply cannot afford to read and post as much here as before. I also imagine this site will lose a lot of contributors.
Assuming the bottom line with youchoose is advertising revenue, I wonder if the prospective revenue generated by this function, is worth the decrease in members to SailNet.
