I am wondering if all of the ads are what's creating the severe Web site performance issues ?
I have found Green Giant food items in my daily logs that I didn't put there more than once, and the site performance has been getting worse, as far as slow over the past few weeks, it was always fine before then ?
If they don't fix it soon, I'm going to have to abandon using this site , it's not worth the effort to wait 30+ seconds between every site transaction .

It's one thing to have the ads in the margins, but to have them cover up part of an article is inexcusable! I will not buy the product; I'm stubborn because I pay enough to be online. I'm not going to pay a hunk of more money to belong to different things online (i.e. Facebook, email, and this site). If I wanted to pay, I'd be on Weight Watchers. However, I've told my dr. I think this site is better than WW's! The ads should not cover up the articles; I don't mind them at the beginning of the videos.

Thanks for your interest in helping us improve the quality of our advertising! While we don't necessarily endorse every product that is advertised on our website, we do our best to block ads that are misleading, unsafe, offensive or contradictory to our medically-accepted recommendations for healthy living and weight loss.
The new "Ads by Zinc" cause a horrible page bounce continuously until the black bar containing those words appear. Also the SP site is heavily scripted which slows down pages loading in a timely manor. I have the latest software updates for both the iPhone and iPad. I do not encounter these problems on any other site.
Side ? Does a page really need a bar of ads and then a triple bar of ads rolling in from the left side of the screen? Makes me want to call it a day and not try reading the SP articles.
I realize you are a free site but I believe the ad suppliers are taking advantage of SP. This is over the top in my opinion. Chitka, Ads by Zinc, Panera etc.
