They are driving me INSANE

The site crashes all the time

It takes ages to load a thread

Then it crashes again


They are completely POINTLESS as they are constantly advertising thinglike the nigerian elections and some dutch site "Jetzt wonnug oder haus finden" WTAF? I'm so sick of it.

I know IT heads always love the latest but this just isn't working.

Please just stop. Please.

One more for the road

At the moment, engaging on mumsnet takes considerable persistence and patience from me.

I'm on a blackberry 9720.

Are you ok op? Who are you talking to or have posts been deleted?

My problem is trying to write a reply longer than 4 lines long! The keypad on the iPhone app takes up over half the screen and for some reason the screen doesn't scroll down independently until you've finished typing that line so you can't see what you've typed! It's very annoying and I have often given up replying!

Yep those ads are truly awful but mine seem to be based on my search history. What have you been looking at wiltingfast?

Mine are for Tomtom which shows a completely ill judged assessment protocol as I hate sat nav and am a die hard map reader.

Beating the system, man...

Hi wiltingfast

Thanks for providing all those screenshots. We'll get our Tech team on the case to see if they can weed any of the blighters out.

Certainly if I'm on the main site, the ads reflect what I have looked sat recently. But not on the mobile app!

Now mine are for TomTom as well. I accidentally clicked on it so will be cursed with it forever...
