    Political video screwing up the site.

    I do not have the latest and greatest machine and a political video for macaskill is locking up my computer, 100% disc usage 90+ CPU when it is loading. Would you tell claire beach to go to hell and advertise somewhere else, please? I would be mad if it was a republican doing it, too.

    You guessed it, I won't be voting for her this fall! 'specially after this resource robbing ad!

    The genius of the United States Constitution - when it frustrates the government, you know it is working.

    It was a good situation, until everything went wrong!
    Rub some dirt on it and walk it off...
    We will always know it should have worked!

    Thanks
    It's the cookies fault. One of the ad companies the site uses is pushing a political video ad. I will just have to put up with it until Nov 7th.

    ad blockers are your friend...just dont expect help from the site when something is odd...

    Add blockers are always your friend...
    Lots of malware finds its way into ones box via adds...
    And as far as I am concerned; if a site will not allow me to read with my add blocker keeping their malware out...
    Then I will not visit that site anymore... PERIOD.

    Security comes before their revenue...
    Unless they are gonna give me a written guarantee to fix my box if it gets a problem.

    BTW: Forbes, Businessinsider, WSJ, and a few others we see in ARP... will not let one read their site with add blockers on... So I do not read their site... PERIOD!

    yes they do. i read all 3 of them today. you have to know what to filter and what not to. a site is not a single domain anymore.

    Well... if they want me to read their fake news...
    They will get rid of the block...
    Or they can peddle their fake news to others.

    Which I am not gonna do... because of the potential for malware.

    Sorry if you do not like the terminology I use... however being blocked is being blocked.

    Baloney. You have to whitelist a very few select domains which comprise their site. Maybe your ad blocker isnt technical enough to separate the various sites and/or allow you to choose which to allow or block.
