Is the Verizon background slowing?

Is the Verizon background slowing down the site for anyone else? Pages take forever to load now, but sure enough, that background shows. I understand needing sponsors, but this is ridiculous. I don't want to wait 2 minutes to get to a page I want to read. Everything was fine before it showed up.

  • I hate it!! I know you need advertisements to keep the site going for free but this? It's just a bit ridiculous. I've refreshed so many times on this site today. Hopefully CafeMom decides to take off the background SOON

  • Hi NightPhoenix, The Verizon ad is not the reason for the slowness. Please refer to our post in the CafeMom Discussion group to read more about it.

  • Thanks for the reply CM Team. I read the post, but still stand by what I said. I had no problems until the background showed up. Whatever the issue, I'm glad you are all trying to get to the bottom of it.

  • It hasn't slowed my computer but it is kind of annoying. Sorry Verizon, but it is. :-)

  • Hasn't caused any problems for me, but I'm also running on a 20mb/s cable connection.
