    It's not the ads, or at least not entirely. I think some of the optimizations recently have backfired. For example, not all comments load at once now but are dynamically loaded from the server when you reach the end.

    In theory it should make the pages load faster, however, the numerous accesses are slower than it would take for the additional data to be sent in the first place. The backend is struggling, every request takes about 1-2 seconds until I start to receive data (connection already accepted) so the database or whatever is taking too long to process the request. Since the changes I don't have to wait just the two seconds and then another one for the data, I have to wait 2 seconds for the first set of data, then another 2 seconds for the next request and so forth.

    Getting to the end of an average news post with ~30 comments takes me over 10 seconds. It's especially annoying because the JavaScript requests seem to slow the browser down quite a bit.

    Tl,dr: The site is slow as molasses.

    Edit: removed something that wasn't actually happening
