We tried before with a thread on the same topic but no one from management turned up with an explanation.
Hopefully, this time they will.
Or perhaps it is deliberate.

Well to ways to defeat denial of service attacks. One is scrubbers that literally ban acesss based on number of times they access the network. Or they can store the site on multiple servers and switch if a server becomes overloaded.
I dont know if ATS uses these methods but if they do it will cause those lags as the site deals with attacks.
