Are you sure you don't have a virus or possibly some malware on your computer? I've never heard anyone complain about the same page loading multiple times.
I've never had a single problem with ads or the site slowing down since I've been a member here.
Ad Blocker is the bane of website owners. I never mention it but I use it constantly. Spy Bot is good as well. Both are freeware on CNet. So is CCleaner (the free version that is). I run all 3 daily.
I see some sites (like Newsmax) are now requesting you turn off Ad Blocker. I don't because I don't want to read ads that I have no interest in.
Ad Block has blocked 187, 000 plus ads since I reset it a month ago, 5 on this page alone just now.
Some forums I participate on, are PPV forums where a membership removes ads.
Additionally, this site always loads super fast for me. No issues what so ever and never gave been.
I'm a website owner myself, a .com site btw.
