    All the trouble started when they started with the ads. If I were paying for advertising on this site, I would be very unhappy knowing that nobody could access the site. I've been trying to get on for hours so I could rant about how frustrating it's been lately. DFO has been extremely slow and unreliable for months. Call an exterminator cause there is a serious bug problem around here!

    Bad here also. I get a lot of “service unavailable “ after waiting for many minutes to load.

    I think you are right, the adds are an issue. Yesterday when the issues began after I was able to log off, I closed my browser window and their was a pop up advertisement that popped up in the background. That's never happened to me before. They need to have more reliable hosting for the forum. I noticed something today as well, the tabs up top take you to the unsecure pages and show you as logged off, then when you get back to the secure site it shows you as logged in. The whole site should be secure. I don't see why some stuff is and some isn't. It's like if the forum has been half configured. They should totally deactivate the unsecure portion of the site.

    Upon my futile log-in attempts yesterday I figured, well, they've done it.
    After 20 years they've finally Banned me.

    I have an adblocker but this was a popup window that snuck up behind my DF open window. First time it happens!

    The INDE ad is just a banner like you say. What I got was a popup and it wasn't even music related. It was some weird sweepstakes or something.

    Yeah! All fixed. I reported this the other day, too. Thanks, drawtheline55, for all of your great efforts on our behalf!

    Sometimes I get popups for giftcard kind of things when using this site. Maybe like the sweepstakes you mention? It actually hasn't happened recently so maybe that has been taken care of.

    It's always the drummer's fault.

    This site is the most problematic sites I visit regularly, which sucks because I love the community and content.

    IF you're getting pop-ups, it's on your end.

    Trust the 'Blaster on these.
