Yeah, that's me too. Firefox with NoScript and Adblock Plus. Haven't seen any of these problems.

I have accessed Sailnet from other browsers that allow all scripts to run and I agree, it's really annoying.

Reality is that SailNet traffic has steadily increased over time albeit with the occasional blip downwards. A comparison of traffic between the major international sailing forums shows that the numbers in comparison to Sailing Anarchy, Cruisers Forums, YBW and SailNet have shown an upward trend for SailNet this calendar year of around 35%. YBW is currently running at number one followed by SailNet, Cruisers Forum and then Sailing Anarchy.

That said the difference between the four is minute in real terms and can change markedly over any quarter. SA e.g. received a big fillip during the AC and is down since, SN has had a big increase this year but is down the last seven days.

Like all forums SailNet ultimately lives and breathes from the input of the posters. If we have some vibrant well attended threads (PCP's wonderful 'Interesting Sailboats' thread is a perfect example) then we thrive. Enter a boring phase and the post count dives. Such it is.

Its also fair to say that quantity does not imply quality, that is far more subjective.
Good points. It's pretty much the antithesis of the crap some doom-and-gloomers try to spin. SN is doing really well....and the reports of its demise/murder/death/whatever are greatly exaggerated...and obviously ridiculous. This place rocks!

Now about that "Interesting Sailboats" thread...

C'mon therapy, the traffic has steadily increased since the ad craziness of last December/January.

As a matter of fact, the numbers have done nothing but climb over the past couple of years (except for the above hiccup).

So it's all good.

I've not used Ad-Block to this point...but this new AdBull is beyond annoying.

Kill it. Please.
WTF is this ad...I just posted a thread on this. A cursor following ad...is just ridiculous. I too have avoided ad-block, but this is it...tipping point reached and threshhold crossed.

arf145 Have been experiencing the same problem as mxtommy--was having difficulty even posting here. Pointed them to nowhere in my hosts (thanks MX) and now look to be good. Ads shouldn't use over half your processor--Furono needs to be spanked.

canadianseamonkey This is site is brutaly slow lately. I don't even bother to visit daily anymore cause I can't stand the delay it causes. I hope it is fixed soon.
