Website redesign

Been away for a while, looks like the website has been completely redesigned. It takes forever to load now and is packed with ads. It takes almost a minute to load and I have good internet. Tried using adblocker but then none of the pictures load.

I was going to get premium, but wanted to see how the new owners changed the place, not impressed so far. Its shinny and new, but seems very cluttered and bloated with stuff that takes forever to load.

What are you guys doing for coping with the new B.S?

Switch to classic view on the website, IMO it seems to work better and it also looks much better if you ask me.
No issues with page loading times; I do have a fast broadband VDSL2- connection which sure helps. I live in Finland, but it doesn't really take much more than 5 seconds to load JF.
Dunno if premium membership helps, because it does drop the ads out. I'm using adblock and all the images load just fine

Do the same that most have done, stop coming here. I used to come in several times a day, now its once every several days. You used to post on gd, then have to check 3 pages backmto find it. Now you can see 2 months ago on page 1. I had full page jet blue ads blocking this visit. I'm pretty much done at this point, joined almost 2 decades ago and paid more than once. It went downhill fast after the sale.

I'm the only gay eskimo.

I'm logged in, currently looking at a QFC add a Chrysler add an allstate add and one that's not loading correctly. I quit paying for premium when I heard keith was selling and so far I'm glad.

Website still takes forever to load, there is just way too much bling and crap that takes forever.

Just switched to classic, confirmed kill the site loads soo much better. The new skin in pure garbage, but I bet it rakes in the add cash.

Just got a message yesterday that the classic forum will not work with the next iOS update, so guess I'll be leaving after years of being on here. Most of which as a paying member. Hate the new site.
