    Connection speeds are nearly unusable; It can take 15 minutes to post a single comment. Many of my connection attempts to sub forum's are being redirected to https://www.snbforums.com/ My latest comment exposing a major Wifi bug in the latest Merlin Firmware was deleted, presumably by staff members. Whoever it is won't even allow me to report bugs? What kind of forum is this? What a joke. I've never seen a more incompetent staff running a forum. Please seriously consider hiring competent staff who care about their users.

    You posted in the official 384.5 release thread to complain about an unreleased, pre-beta 384.6 alpha build. I deleted your post as being off-topic to that thread.

    As for forums performance, check your own network/ISP first. Forum speed is working fine for the rest of us.

    Or the "speed enhancing, privacy guaranteeing" blocking scripts that they've "developed" and run on their router.

    Woops sorry my brother, ok then, I live and learn. There were and still are other posts regarding the alpha, albeit no bug reports, but point taken, thank you for clearing that up for me and please accept my apologies if you were offended in anyway. As for the forum speeds, this is the only website throttled and it only occurs when logged in, logged out speeds are normal. ISP cannot distinguish due to https encryption.

    Here is a video;

    Looks like this is a server side feature for preventing spam/ddos, severely restricting connection attempts but also breaking many in the process, requiring that I click and wait multiple times before a connection goes through.... my focus is souly on serving others with the best information I can and to learn and help others. Please look into this for me because the website is practically unusable.
