    Anyone else having a hard time with some of these ads? They cause page loading to sometimes take over a minute. There's one on here from Canadian Tire that has so much animation to download I usually end up going to off to do something else.

    Some of these ads block the ability to see how many votes the first MOTD contender has. When we were paying we had a button to 'turn off ads' which made life a lot more bearable. These ads are now all over people's profiles as well.


    I'll gladly pay the 30 bucks and get supporter status back if I can wipe out these invasive ads.


    -Doug, un-nerved, lol!

    Thanks guys, I'm using Google Chrome which is likely the problem.

    OK, so far I've used Google Chrome , then Mozilla Firefox and now IE 8 - all do the same thing on Realjock - slow as molasses and buried in ads.

    Supporter status is gone and so is the button to turn off ads on the top of the RJ page where it used to be.

    Firefox won't block ads until you install the Ad-Block add-on linked above.

    lol, Thanks Paradox, I had the ad-block on Firefox active...but still saw the ads for zoosk and that annoying Canadian Tire one that needs 30 seconds to load up every time I change a page. None of this was an issue before RJ crashed the other night......

    ...I wonder what's going on? As well, Guys Who Viewed Me is now two rows of pics on the home page (and there's no way we're THAT popular).

    PS I sent an email to admin...so we'll see what they have to say.
