What is it with the PCA site?

The site seems to load in a very strange way and it always now spits and starts and jumps all over the place.

I have a iMAC with Mountain Lion and Safari 6.0.1. No matter what I do, it never seems smooth in its operation.

It works, but I get giddly trying to see where the pages are going to with their jumping up and down. Is it because of the various adverts or is there something more fundamental to the/my problem?

Cheers

Wizzing along on dial-up, BUT I've lost the BOLD/ITALICS strip above 'reply to this topic' and the output text box below, to see what my post will look like. [again]

And another thing: You look at thread heading and click on the last response link. If that last response (post) is at the bottom of the last page then all you get is the initial post and have to back out, and re-enter the thread the long way. This has been happening since the site was changed.

the site did speed up like a normal web site but is slipping backwards again each visit gets slower.

when it was temp faster the toolbar with the social network icons did not appear at the bottom of the screen, the toolbar is back and so is the treacle.

Recently, I was a-complainin' that I couldn't see the ' output box '...you know, the part of the screen below this ' input box '.

Well, I've just noticed that it's now a ' dynamic ' 'slightly blue-tinted' space that 'takes' whatever you type in ... well done, PCA.

[Once you start typing in your next ' reply to this post ', you'll see what [the heck] I'm talking about.]

That floating red bar near the top has just reappeared in the last hour ... and my attempts to use the RHS scroll-bar end up with staccato jerky unresponsive scrolling of the web-page ... which is a pain.

I don't have the red bar anymore, but on loading PCA in Safari is still spits and starts before it settles down and even scrolling it is far from smooth. I have to say it is only PCA that behaves in this fashion so am not too sure what they can do to improve the situation.

I keep wondering whether it is something in Safari or the detail contained within the PCA Website.

I get the Red bar when scrolling down in Firefox, this is so that you do not need to scroll to the top to change forums etc. Just hover your mouse over what you want. But it can be distracting. I also find this bar when at the top too close to the text for forums as it opens too easy when using the Forum Text titles and thus blocks out the forum text, with list of what I do not want. Find it very irritating. It would be better if the Bar was moved up a space on the PCA Web Page tool bar

I have just noticed that in Safari the Red bar is no longer there, but in Firefox 15.0.1 for the MAC it is there. This is becoming stranger than fiction!
