b.scorecardresearch is interfering with TSG pages completely loading in a timely manner, up to 1/2 minute in some cases today.

I've blacklisted it in the Firefox extension, (edit: ) Blocksite...made a big difference. TSG pages load very quickly now.

Good to hear.
I hate delays because no matter how fast your internet speeds are a delay is still a delay and the faster speed will not make the delay take up less time.

Well, I have fast Internet and a pretty speedy machine. I've come to expect minimal delays, and I have no tolerance for slow sites.

Just had the same thing today, at work. I know this is an old thread, but was just curious what it is, as I can't search about it for obvious reasons
