I was fortunate to find the BD website some years ago, certainly not an old timer myself, but have read plenty to know the history. When I first joined BD I think it was in somewhat of a transition period. Since that time everytime the site goes down for maintenance it comes back with a little more ad's than before. Recently;...now' it's ad's in between ad's. It slows the whole site down, I have really good speed ...60, but even with that. it now is starting to hesitate when maneuvering around BD. I have actually had to stop visiting some of my favorite sites in the past because you can't even scroll through a conversation without getting ad's in between posts.( It's now getting the same here) So My thought's to BD Admin. "Please limit the amount of ad's" So we can enjoy the content without being annoyed by BS ADS.
