The lag can be annoying sure, but it's never stopped me from posting. :P Who's it stopping, cause i'm not noticing.

While it might be a tad irritating if you have to go back and edit a mistake or two a few times, does that extra 10-30 seconds really make any sort of significant impact in your life?

More importantly, does it warrant the half dozen threads complaining about it?

When I hit submit, I right click the forum title and open a new tab so I can continue browsing. When the original tab has (finally) finished posting my message, I close it.

I see a lag, but it isnt anything that I deem worthy of bitching about, and I bitch about a LOT .. I see the same lag when opening up some of the other sites I access .. and with FIOS sites open up pretty damn fast

I think a brand new FIRST baby is more worthy right now .. then more 2.0 stuff

but thats probably just me and my crazy POV

I value having the large archive of posts more than shortening the not very long period it takes to make a post personally.

I think deleting all posts/threads under the Archive category should help alot, and almost no one will miss any of that. Plus it'll be a nice segue into 2.0 forums.

i say we just delete all of Teflor's posts, and any post that came in response to a teflor post. that should clear off some room :p

You know, if every additional thread increases the post lag, then isn't it a bit counter productive to post multiple threads complaining about it and demanding that threads be removed?

Oh sweet irony!
