    I changed browsers, looked into eveyrhing else I could and this website is freezing so bad I can barely use it. I am having no problems with any other website. Solution?

    I would think its got something to do with your WiFi or computer or something along the lines of that. Because it works fine for me.

    Hope it starts to work again soon!

    My suspicion is you are having issues caused by the video ads that tend to load and run on the sides -- they can cause absolute havoc with attempting to navigate the sight and drive a person to madness. The simplest solution is to purchase a "Golden Feather" membership which enables you to disable those. Alternatively you may be able to employ some adblockers, etc to cut them down.
