Jesus.. the title... I thought you meant it was full of refreshing opinions and I thought you were mental.

Nope. Loads slow as hell on a iPad and is annoying and moves the screen all over, other than that same old on pc

Nope. Using the mobile website on Android. Samsung Internet.

Go to www.blokada.org and download that app (not from the play store) if you're on Android. No ads. Ever.

Love the site but issue is making it in-useable for me. Refreshes so I cannot write a decent size post.

They had this fixed and guess it’s back. Tend to save and edit, save and edit, just to even be able to post using safari.

It’s all the ridiculous ads they cram in. At least I haven’t seen a video ad in a while.

Never had such problems. I'm on Firefox with uBlock Origin, so no ads are coming through.

Okay. Unless realgm solves these issues, I have to log out or move to lakersground.

There is a cycle of obtrusive advertising followed by a few months of the site being functional.

It really sucks because there is good discussion here. However, this layout is odd even when working properly. vbulletin seems to be the standard on most sites I visit and is faar more functional. I'd love to see a switch

I stopped visiting this site on mobile devices. It burns through my battery faster and I feel it physically get hotter. No issues on my macbook with chrome and adblocker.

This is like my 7th attempt writing this. It’s refreshing every 5 Seconds. This website is trash.

I use the TapaTalk RealGM app on my Android phone. Have a problem with it crashing alot. Some days it's fine, some days it's almost unusable.

Also if switch to Android chrome. Sometimes when I click on a thread it takes me to a completely unrelated site. Wierd.

Doesn't happen on my desktop using chrome or Firefox.

How does a site the size of realgm continue to have these amateur issues. It’s so annoying and I can’t imagine a new user ever sticking around through this.

Very hard to use on safari currently. Refreshing, crashing and cooking the phone. Will move onto another site I guess.
