Umm….I don’t like it. Wayyyyy too many ads. Very cluttered. I pay the yearly subscription. I pay for the content. The price is the same. Why do I need to see ads for table saw blades first when I simply want to read a review of them? What am I paying for? This pay-for-content model will not work with the obnoxious ads slowing down (and sometimes freezing) my computer. Everybody is getting too greedy!

How have they responded to you emails explaining how you don’t like the new format?

I thought the same thing when I first saw the changes. Then they sent me $100 for a tip I submitted, and I suddenly liked it again.

I like it. Comes up fast on my tablet. What device are you using? What is your internet speed?

I have not seen the issues you mentioned.

I use my tablet, WiFi, my wife’s laptop also WiFi, and my desktop, hard wired, with out any issues!
