Over the last week or so, the home page seems to take forever to load, usually hanging on a url call to a tracking, ad or some other site. Just thought the admins should know that at least someone is experiencing problems.
Yeah, it's seems sporatic - I'm sure it's something that one of the ads is serving up, so I'm guessing different people may be affected differently. When it happens to me again, I'll post the urls that it's hanging on.
Working fine for me, entering via the Home page, the Forum page, or the UserCP page. And I've got my browser pretty well locked down for extraneous web stuff messing about with my online experience outside of the specific sites I use.
Try clearing your browser's cache/settings completely (including any saved cookie/password entries you might have for the DefensiveCarry.com domain), then shutting down and restarting. I've had a few fouled issues that got immediately cleared after that. Worth trying.
Everything loads fine here. Run Malwarebytes in safe mode and follow ccw9mm's advice as well....should clear up whatever is hogging your resources and bandwidth.
run a scan for tracking cookies and web crawlers they will slow down the loading
Mine has worked about 10x faster since I went to Google Chrome as my browser instead of Internet Explorer.
Happened to me this morning running Goggle Chrome. Has cleared up since.

It's one of the servers that one of the ads serves up. I just installed Adblock to get rid of it.
I'm now using Open DNS and I just set it up on my WinXp SP3 machine yesterday and I must say that all of my pages load faster. Very easy set-up with no software to download and install.
