    slow responses?

    Does anyone else have problems getting pages to load on BF?

    I sometimes seem to wait 5 minuites for my page to load, when everything else I'm looking at is near instananeous. Is it a server issue?

    Every now and then it goes real slow.
    Probably just traffic issue.

    Maybe the ads only pay by the click and nobody clicks 'em. I know I don't. Besides, new servers are EXPENSIVE! Maybe the revenue they generate is enough to cover their operational costs but don't generate enough to upgrade in response to the higher traffic.
