"Me too."

Though forums have their advantages for some types of discussion, I 
find those irrelevant next to the disadvantages. I find web based 
forums in general frustratingly slow and ineffective, in terms of 
navigation as well as server response times. Unless the topics are 
*extremely* interesting, I just won't tolerate it if the server has 
this too common habit of taking a coffee break every other time I 
click something. I can't stand anything that frequently takes more 
than a second to respond to basic navigation operations.

I thought faster computers and faster connections would make things 
faster and smoother - but I guess I was wrong...
