    Okay, when you say "slow" are you talking about the load speed of the web site or the "short bus" version of the content?

    Had to ask.

    Yes, this. It takes about 15 seconds to load a page on my phone. On my PC, no issue. I assume a tracking cookie is trying to do something and takes 15 seconds to time out.

    So I learned a few things. "No really it isn't you, it's me!" A can accept that, I'll have to track down what it is on my end.

    Thanks for the leads.

    As Comatose says, it's very fast on a normal fiber connection. Agonizingly slow compared to most anything on a cell phone. As Rons says, probably the huge amount of ads being loaded. I believe there is/was a reader app that might speed it up?

    Sometimes I'll try the PM site when on the go - then as the screen slowly crawls to life, remember that it sucks in this mode and do something else. Could also be partly due to my service provider throttling it down for some reason. There are a fair amount of graphics in the ads . . .
