Sorry The Consumerist is Gaytarded

Have you noticed how The Consumerist has been loading slower and slower and slower? We certainly have.

It sucks!

Our techs know all about it (except how to immediately fix it) and things should be more reasonable tomorrow but probably won’t drastically improve until the arrival of two new servers next week.

Until then, hold tight!

If you’re sick of hitting refresh and not seeing any new content, may we suggest that now is the time to switch to an RSS reader?

    Is LifeHacker located on the same servers, by chance?

  3. Ben Popken says:

    Yes SeekBalance, it’s a pan-Gawker-Media-phenom.

    This is bad. And suddenly so. Is somebody hitting you with a DOS attack?

    “Gaytarded?”
    You have the hackneyed writing style of a 12 year-old redneck breeder.

    I’m just glad it’s not my Gaytarded little computer.

    …..It sounds like a Sony tactic, paying a big zombie-bot group to DOS the Gawker empire. Or maybe Wallie World or Best Buy.

    Yep, it would seem there are about 16 sites hosted on this server. Nothing wrong with that, but they are high volume sites.

    You didn’t buy those new servers at Office Max, did you?

    While were on the subject of slow loads, the meta refresh that’s suddenly appeared on this(and lifehacker’s site) is extremely annoying. Typically, I’m right in the middle of reading a post when it suddenly decides to reload. Since the posts on the front page are constantly being updated, after the page loads, I have to hunt for the story I was in the middle of reading!

    Please, for my sanity if nothing else, get rid of the meta refresh! Unlike most, I know where the reload button is and I know how to use it.
