airforums site response time

For some time now it appears airforums web site response is always waiting for "a.oogla.com" to move on. What is up w/this and why? I have experienced as long as 10 minutes.



Another issue, sign in and go to respond to what ever and have to sign in again.


Any one else encounter either of these issues?



Best regards and safe travels

There are a number of sites associated with advertisers who, when they change their domain name, use a redirect to send you to the new site. These can chain together and eventually your browser will consider it an attack on your device. I've seen the "oogla" link pop up before and it may be a tracking site or advertising, not sure. Whatever page you're attempting to get to is waiting for these ads and ad pictures to load before displaying the entire page.


For problem sites like these, I block them on my router. Most routers have the ability to block specific sites or you can also wildcard the site entry, like "*.oogla.*" to prevent them from loading. You can also use an add-on app like Adblock Plus (free), but some sites won't allow you access to their content unless you whitelist their URL in Adblock Plus.

I usually have no problems, except this morning when I couldn’t open any thread.

I refreshed my browser, Safari, and it resolved.

I'm using U-Block origin.
So far, no problems on the forum.
Right now U-Block is stopping 42 ads.

Using Adblock + and Ghostery - my standard goto plugins for web browsing and am not experiencing any problems.

By the way, when you block those ads, you actually hurt the revenue of Air Forums. You should consider donating to them if you regularly read/respond on the site to help make up for that.

Advertisers can get pretty stupid in their attempt to grab your attention and often have the exact opposite result from what they desire. I used to run the advertising system of a largish web site and I was always smacking advertisers for the things they tried to get away with. Most of the time, the person paying the bill had no idea what was going on.

When times get tough, many sites are afraid to tell advertisers "no" because they may pull all their ads and go somewhere else.
