    I am having a hard time posting. It can take me 10 minutes to type a post. Letters will skip, the cursor will appear stuck. I have trouble using the erase key and back/del.

    It is a complete pain to post. I thought this might be my computer because of a pea soup incident earlier this spring. It is not. I have typed on other sites and Open office with my normal speed and accuracy (34% and 12 words a minute).

    This problem started the same time picture uploading problems did. I no longer have any problems with pictures but posting ..

    I have no idea if this make as difference, I have a Toshiba with a A-6 quad core, I use explorer 8. I have a touch screen, but I seldom use the touch screen on this site.

    I am not a techie, I am old and not so smart on this stuff, thanks.....

    I'm having the same issues....start to type and it's like my keyboard has the hiccups! Skips some letters completely while it's frozen. Backspace and delete keys behave as though they're second guessing me and checking in some obscure grammar book to see if I really want to take out that letter or delete that sentence before there's any response. It's frustrating. I was thinking it had something to do with all of the video ads - seems like the more fussy and detailed the video ads are the worse my computer behaves - almost as if it is focusing on that and ignoring what I'm telling it to do.

    And I can spell check everything and still have mis-spelled words in my posts. Spelling words wrong drives me crazy!!

    Thanks

    Thanks,

    Actually Blooie explained it better than I did. I thought it was just my computer until I typed on a couple other sites and open office.
