Default Slow page loads due to video advertiser


Every page I load spends at least 2-3 seconds with "Connected to idgtechnetwork.com..." in the status bar. Lately, every post I make sits there for 10-15 seconds before dumping me at the "Sorry, this forum requires you to wait 60 seconds between posts" page. It's making the post, timing out, then apparently resubmitting. The whole time it's "Connected to idgtechnetwork.com..." in the status bar.

What's this site do?
Code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.idgtechnetwork.com/design/video/scripts/player-a0.js"></script>
Load a video ad that people have complained about since the first day. And now it's making it hard to visit and hard to use the site.

Yup, I can confirm that.
This site is very slow for the last days.
I'm going to add idgtechnetwork.com to my blacklist.

Such a relief now I've added http://www.idgtechnetwork.com to my Adblock.ini

Hadn't thought to try that. Shame it's going to plague any new visitors.

I just noticed this thread (so wasn't aware others had similar issues):

Since I could no longer use this site (due to a conflict with our corporate firewall), I added idgtechnetwork.com and www. idgtechnetwork.com to my hosts file (modified copy of http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm) on Jan 22nd, 2013 to resolve the issue.
