Default Florida Sportsman forums

Is anyone having problems? The site has been very buggy for me the last few days, even causing my computer to lock up.

Just go to their OFF TOPIC forum and look for "Forum slowdown threads", many pages of complaints. One of their animated Adobe (formerly Macrovision) Flash ads, apparently written by an inept programmer is grabbing all unused computer cycles and taking CPU usage to 100%, slowing everything on the computer down. That seems like a rather stupid thing for a website to allow, or an advertising agency to do, because it is causing a large number of their customers to take the time and bother to figure out a way to block all ads. I don't mind ads on the website, but when they cause my computer to become almost useless, then I will figure out some way to stop them.

Destinview, MacroMEDIA formerly (and still does) make the Flash stuff, they're just owned by Adobe now. It's a security issue with the plugin, not ineptitude of the programmer, if it allows the CPU to slow down enough that the browser crashes. But yeah, there should be some screenign process to make sure ads don't break things.

Might I suggest that those of you with an outdated flash player go and update it now? www.adobe.com - pull down "downloads" menu at top, then click flash player.

Firefox with ad-blocker will take care of the problem.

The Pullaris ads are to blame, I swear.

As mentioned above FIREFOX does the trick. I downloaded the new IE 7 and it was still as slow as the old version.
