... you encounter problems such as waiting a LONG time for a page to come up, or even an error message such as "connection timed out."
Our tech team has been tweaking some settings to try to deal with a problem that is believed to be related to the ongoing spambot siege. But as with all attempts to handle a persistent problem, there's always the chance that a fix for Problem X could create a new Problem Y.
Working with the site all day and night, I notice glitches but if you just check in a time or two a day/night and experience one, you might think "oh, maybe it's just me/my connection" and NOT report it. So I'm requesting - at least right now - that if you do hit a major speed bump and/or get an error message, please let us know.
