I have a pretty decent internet connection. There is something about this site that creates an extremely irritating delay when navigating the site. I frequent several shooting and hunting forums, as well as a couple of work related sites... THF is the only one that behaves this way. The delay is a couple of seconds, to occasionally as much as 10 seconds, that navigation just freezes. That freeze always ends when the ad space on the left finally populates.
Even though I'm a paid member on the site, I do not mind the ads themselves, but the navigation freezes get under my skin.
