Website trouble

The Sailnet website has become REALLY slow when using Chrome as a browser. It seems fine using IE. (so there is a workaround, but I much prefer Chrome)

It seems that the ad engine is causing trouble. When I click on any page (user CP, new posts) I get the Wells-Fargo Private Bank ad twice, then the following messages;
Quote:
Waiting for adfarm.mediaplex.com...
Quote:
Waiting for amch.questionmarket.com...
Quote:
Waiting for log10.doubleverify.com...
then my browser hangs...

I thought that you should know..

Also, I noticed that my avatar, and a few other user's avatars. do not appear when using chrome. I just noticed that they appear fine in IE.

Your prize is available for collection. Simply send me postage and handling fees of $275.00 by Western Union and it will be shipped by return.

I've been on line for the last couple of hours using Firefox and with AdBlobk disabled. No problems.

Yeah, I'm starting to see the problem with Chrome too. Kind of a deal killer if the advertising engines necessitate the need to use FF and AdBlock.

Anyway, I'm just counting the days until my new Chanel watch comes in. Blingy baby!

OH, TD - Embedded videos don't work here. That's why I posted a link, rather than do the embed thing.

I did figure out where you were pointing though, and all I can ask is; are there are any shrooms left?
