    Jesus. I've been trying to ignore it for about an hour. It's not me. My speed is 20 mbs/2 mbs. I'm not the most experienced person with the technical aspects of running a forum, but I find it hard to believe that a text-based site like this runs this slow "normally".

    What's wrong with this place? It has a LOT of paid members, advertisiments, etc... it's a pretty safe assumption that the site is making money and you'd think that a site about money that is making money would have page load speeds that were at least adequate, if not FAST. Maybe I'm wrong, but I would assume that a site that makes money and has a focus of helping others to make money would have the economic sophistication to understand that providing a good user experience is a way to create more members and therefore more money, but this site seems to be at the other end of the spectrum and is serving pages slow as hell.

    What's the deal with this site? Is it the forum software? The hosting? I heard a rumor about the hosting, but do not know if it is true, or maybe was true, etc... But whatever the reason, this is really annoying.

    Most days I find it fast. Faster than ***** for example. It's been a while since this site was regularly slow.

    That. ;) Let 's give some credit to the guys that actually run this instead of bitching about speed.

    Today has been the slowest day yet. Usually after awhile it goes back to normal.

    All things considered, BHW is the fastest and most stable BH site.

    I do believe that when I get connection hangups, specifically 500 and 503, it's because moderators are currently doing something like getting rid of a thread.

    It also probably doesn't help that.......Forget what I was about to say. I was about to bitch at the 1000 people that are leeching proxies at any given moment... Now it's just 400. whoa. Actually, wait lol there are only 1500 users online, 400 registered. This is awesome lol
