Getting real tired of this website

Aside from the endless BS I am really sick of the way this site drags. Maybe its not that way for the PREMIUM members, but paying a website is ridiculous in my opinion so that won't happen. And what's up with the CONTROVERSIAL warning on politics and religion. These things are stupid, but they are not controversial. So do what you will, I'm out of here.

First off......something is wrong on your end, as the site is running just fine "I would hear about it if there was an issue".

Secondly.......there is a forum section called "Trooper Arena" where you can talk pretty much about whatever you feel like safely.

Now........clear your system cache and make sure you don't have malware and spam on your computer, and then take a few deep calming breaths and head on over to the Arena section "towards bottom of main forum page". Just put the password in specified and your are good to go. Relax dude...........

I'm not a premium member and the site runs just fine. As mentioned above, you could have a malware problem.
Also, I run an ad blocker app with the Chrome browser. I understand that may not be the best thing for the forum owners (a revenue issue?) so feel free to delete this suggestion if it's not appropriate.

I know what I'm sick of. WHINERS . If this site is not valuable enough to you to pay the $20, don't complain and go away quietly.
As for the rules, they're there for a reason.

Well, hopefully that fulfilled his minimum daily requirement for drama.

I have had a few issues with slowness on this forum the past few weeks, I just go to another forum for a while until it speeds up and it always does. Today it's running fine here.

I've never had any issues and notice no advantage with the premium membership.

I let my membership lapse over the boycott sv racing thread.

I just use an ad blocker and the experience is literally the exact same thing. IMO the only advantage to premium membership is being able to store more PM's.

Basically, the problem is on your end... paying $20 wont help regardless.

I'm almost always on an iPad using the motorcycle.com app. It was 3 bucks

There are no adds and it loads fast. The only issue I have run into is sometimes pictures don't load

Do not complain if you are not willing to help. I guess this is why you left two FJR websites as well. Makes you wonder how messed up the sites are when you have left 3 and no one else seems to have followed.
