video ads

I know this place is free, thanks, and ads keep it that way but are the video ads that take so much time to load and slow my browser down to a crawl actually placed there by the owners or are they spam and I can get rid of them?
I can't type a message-reply without typing about 3-4 words, 5-10 seconds ahead of what actually shows up in the thread text box.

I like this site but if it takes me a few minutes each time just to type a reply it gets frustrating.

There's not much we can do to get rid of them as far as I know. I don't even notice them on regular DSL, but if you're on a slower bandwidth I can definitely see them being a problem. Hopefully one of the site admins can chime in and set some kind of resolution for you. @VS-Admin , do you have any suggestions for this?

I think the majority of video ads, are played when you're not logged in.

Try being logged into your account more often, and report back if you're still seeing video ads.

Unless I'm seeing different ads than the OP, I'm seeing 4-5 video ads per page I'm on.

Chrome on a PC
