Lots of 500 errors (couldn't reply to this thread last night because of them and at times I can't even get on the forum), slow, and the page doesn't always fully load.
Life is but a momentary glimpse of the wonder of the astonishing universe, and it is sad to see so many dreaming it away on spiritual fantasy.~Carl Sagan

I have just cleared a few thousand redundent ban triggers and deleted 25,000+ unused and inactive spammer accounts and things seem to have improved. Is this also the case for you?
