    this has been happening for as long as i've been on this site, but i was wondering, is there a way to make it so the embeded videos in a thread don't try to pre-load, thereby freezing the internet browser? maybe it's just my computer-- i dunno. but it's so aggravating to click on a thread and then my entire browser has to be force-closed because it can't handle the 20 youtube videos that are trying to pre-load on the page. again, maybe it's just my old computer that can't handle it, or maybe it does happen to everyone else. i don't know. if anyone else experiences this let me know. and if there is a way to fix it, please do. this is the only site where i find this to happen, so i'm not sure what's going on.

    thanks.

    I have the same problem. I assumed the problem was with Charter. I didn't have that problem with Comcast.

    great! its not just me. i think its the source of some of the videos: they seem to have redirection links added onto them and my anti-malware has to block the garbage before the videos run.
