I am running into a persistent issue with dbstalk pages not loading. Whenever this happens, firefox displays "waiting for tag.contextweb.com". If I keep trying, the pages will eventually load but it is frustrating and getting worse with time.

I was having the same problem. Installing Adblock Plus for Firefox seems to have fixed the issue for me.
Thanks, worth a try. I realize that ads help support the website, but when they affect the functionality in this way they are counterproductive.

Installing the addon seems to have helped.

Another workaround for Windows/Internet Explorer users: (Or any browser without a decent adblock plug in)

Open notepad.
Browse to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
Open the file called "hosts".

This file should look like this:

Code:
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#	127.0.0.1       localhost
#	::1             localhost
At the bottom, just add this line:

Code:
127.0.0.1      contextweb.com
(NO # in front of that line)

And contextweb doesn't bother you any longer. This does not affect ads loaded through other adcontent providers.

The HD Anticipation thread is lightly moderated, there are many threads that I read every (or close to) post in. That thread is more of a casual conversation thread that usually gets mod attention when someone reports a post. I'm not saying that we don't read it, just not as closely.

Try a cache clear.

Not serving any contextweb ads. So, not sure what you are seeing. Any other information you can provide would be great and I can try digging further. (Then again, unless I missed something.)

Thanks
