Has anyone else been experiencing problems with ATS not showing up a full page because its waiting on a connection the ad servers?

The biggest problem for me is mediaplex.com.

Can ATS stick the JAVA script or whatever you use at the bottom of the HTML so it loads last and not first as its delaying the page showing up by at least 30 secs sometimes upto a minute.

I run 3 sites and my ad scripts are run last so that at least the HTML comes up and then I might have a few blank ad spaces but at least the users can see the page while the ads are loading...

Sounds like a great idea, but wouldn't that give us a chance to avoid seeing the ads at all?

Works fine for me.

Maybe you need a better connection.

Yup, i have had this a LOT.

It started right after the Google+1 widget was added (not sure if they are connected).

Sometimes there are images on the thread that don't load, so i don't really know what is going on. And because of the whole DNS cache thing, if i try to view the image by itself, it still only shows the same half. To me, it is not worth the time to have to clear my DNS cache just for a hope to see an image that, most often (recently, anyway) sucks.

My posting at ATS has slowed almost to a crawl lately.

To address this before someone mentions it relating to my case....i pay for a higher bandwidth package for gaming purposes. I DL at about 20-25, UL at about 2-2.5. It isn't my connection, as my ping is good enough to play Call of Duty Black Ops on XBOX Live with people in Australia.without lagging.
