Dear Webby

    I think I've figured out what's delaying this site for me, and I'm writing to request that you remove the video in the top right corner. Everything else loads and then my 'puter freeze while the ad screen loads, upwards of a minute every single time.

    You know I love this site (as do the other million members), and I suspect I'm not the only one with this issue. Is there a way to resolve this?

    Happy Valentine's Day,
    X

    Edit: OK, I changed the title to Webby. I've used this site for years without a single hitch, ever. But this has become uber-frustrating. I use Safari at home, and rarely if ever have issues with picture links or video links. But this Google video ad sucks donkey balls.

    You'll probably want to rename the thread Dear Webby.

    Maybe, but Moddy isn't your answer. You need Webby.

    I keep getting Flash errors on mine. And not the good Flash errors (where a certain poster would send me a photo that won't open). I'll happily contribute more to the SportsJournalists.com operating fund if it will help, but the video seems to give my work computer some fits.

    You should probably talk to Webby.

    Dear Landlord,
    Please don't put a price on my soul.
    My burden is heavy.
    My dreams are beyond control.

    Dear X,
    Love you, too, my friend. I can't help on this one.
    Send Webby a box of chocolates and your request. And a check. Lots of checks. Otherwise, he needs the ads.
    This joint is fun but it ain't free.
    Love,
    Moddy

    Webby...ads or no ads...if you need help keeping the site up and running, please send out a request for donations. I'll be more than thrilled to do my part.

    Hell, I'll give him the common courtesy of a reach-around for the sake of helping make this site run faster.

    And no joint worth its stone ought to be free ...

    I've kiboshed sent money before, and I'll send money again.

    I have no problems with the ads, but that movie screen on the upper right shows some weird stuff bordering on embarrassing.

    No problems with SportsJournalists.com delays here. Running the same as it ever did.

    Yes...the wedgie video raised an eyebrow or two.
