All this takes bandwidth.

Fact of life on a site which places ad-clicks over member satisfaction.

And then if you happen to click on a sub-forum in which someone has posted a lot of large pictures, you may as well go grab a sandwich.

Yes, it does take bandwidth, but I think there is something programatic going on in the background with respect to the click tracking. We've seen this before, where some callouts were taking longer than expected. I helped a couple of folks when saw this, and VerticalScope had to make a change, which eliminated the waiting.
