slow loading of new cow

Hi all, ever since your interface change I am getting extremely long page loads on the forums. (The home page loads immediately) but most of the other catagories need downright minutes to load. For example if I click the forums button the forum page redirects immediately as do pretty quickly the adds left and right, but for a couple of minutes the rest of the page (posts) is white. I have been doing a major editing job and haven't had the time to sit down and figure out why, but finally today's the day. I noticed in one thread (took almost 10 minutes to get the whole thread loaded!) that you suggest turning off java script. At the risk of looking stupid, I can't for the life of me see where to do that...could you point me in the right direction? Thanks!

This has been happening L-O-N-G before the interface change. It started about a year ago and affects a small percentage of users.
Because some service providers will take no issue from bigger sites like an Amazon, a Google, an Apple or a YouTube -- but they take issue and throw security filtering when it's used by smaller sites like the COW.
Are we doing anything sinister? Nope. We do not collect nor track our user data and we do not sell our member database, which amounts to your username and address -- as I said, we do not track our users and we are not compiling data like Google, etc.
