Seriously...

All of these new ads cause my browser to crash every 30 seconds! It's a challenge to read or post anything this way

Having the same issue, although strangely only certain threads seem to cause repeat crashes, while other threads are fine.
All are slowed on my netbook, it keeps jumping back when ads update.
Admin are you out there?

The animated ads are really the issue.

Adblockers are not an option on my phone and my phone is what I use for web browsing 90% of the time.
For this reason, I avoid ad heavy sites...like this one (?).

Adblockers are not supported on my ios9 Apple device and I'm not shelling out hundreds for a new device just because a few sites want more advertising revenue.

Funny, I run iOS 9.2.1, and found there are several excellent ad blockers...........

As I said, adblockers are not supported on my iOS9(.2.1) device (hardware, not software).
