I have always had the adblock plus add-on for my browser so I don’t see most ad’s.
I have recently started working on YouTube and setting up my own videos and website so i’m more familiar with advertisement and payments.

Because of this, i have been disabling the AdBlock Plus for those sites I frequent the most but with this site, i must say, i have to leave it on. There are so many ad’s that show up it feels like I’m running on dial-up.
I have FIOS at home and crazy fast speed at work and if I allow ad’s to display I spend more time waiting for each projects page to load the advertisements than I do actually looking at it.

I kept reading about this magical “adblock plus”. Well, I just figured I’d give it a try and LJ’s went from >20 seconds to load each page down to <2 seconds per page. Thanks for the tip!

I am very sorry for the issue many of you are facing. It has been reported and they are working on it. Thank you for your patience. I know it is a pain to deal with.

I read your post three times and I still don’t see your point …
Adds pay for a lot of sites, but we still are irked by their intrusive presents.

my point is, on other sites i frequent, Sawmill creek, bushcraftusa, etc. I have disabled AdBlock Plus so those pages I enjoy will get their ad revenue. I wanted to do it with this page but something is very wrong with whatever they have setup. I put this in the Feedback forum, just as that. Feedback, not to get more people to block their ad’s
