    I don't mind the halloween theme as its my favorite holiday next to Christmans, but the fireworks/explody thingies have to go.

    They are annoying and slow the site down. I ran YSLOW and its much slower, which i don't think BHW world owners want.

    Thanks

    Scroll down to the very bottom of the screen and look to the left. Merry Christmans.

    My Opinion:
    Those aren't fireworks, they are exploding candy!

    I'm all for something different, i just don't like exploding whatever on my screen. Not to mention slowing down Firefox drastically.

    while you're at it, get rid of 'hide referer' since it doesn't work anymore!

    Really!?
    That's your question?
    Have you ever been out trick-or-treating before?
    What planet are your from?
    Did I just ask 4 questions in a row?
    Oops, did my previous question make it five?
