It always has its issues, but running the site on my tablet (kick a$$ tablet) is so damn slow (ads mostly) that it is not worth it.

My MO has always been about how to address tech issues, but I have cynically bought onto the line that it is no use. No amount of good intentions have any impact, and no one is at the wheel.

The only reasons I have been given for the inattention have been weak, or reverence to out beloved admins. There is no doubt that the known names are not the problem, it is the lack of knowing ANY names of ANYONE that has any ability resolve even the simplest issues.

This site has too much traffic for anyone to buy that it so unprofitable to resolve anything past a reboot. Enough! Time for some angry action.

I have some ideas how to raise our hands. The owners have other user contributed sites, social media presences, and we can piss them off.

Problems have been tolerated long enough. If you are interested, let's discuss grassroots action!

I think it might be some of the ads that are doing it--one of my media players (can't recall which) has crashed several times in the past few days, but only on pages with ads.

It's probably my school's wifi rubbing off on the site.

I had left this to die. I totally think I could mount a successful social/insurgency against the owners. With some help, it could be... brutal. Question of will.

maybe we should DDoS and hack the website to where it's off the internet, then set up a new server with the doman of "debate.org" and successfully overthrow Juggle?

Well... No. Not illegal. I am talking about grass roots rabble rousing. There IS internet territory they care about. Enough effort pushing buttons they care about would get attention.

Slow? In my case, it is not. I have a WIFI modem. Maybe you should get one, too. In fact, the modem is no near in my computer that it its actually placed on top of the System Unit.
If computers have no doors or fences, who needs Windows and Gates?

I have a 10-0-0 debate record with an ELO ranking of 2,814. From 610th during my first two-week stay, I am now 326th in the Debates Leaderboard: http://www.debate.org...

We don't have to work to make the tech on the site to look bad, it does. We need to bring some attention to them where they actually DO care.

Not to mention DDoS attacks cost money, and I imagine even if someone doesn't care about the legality of it, they wouldn't want to waste money on something this inane.
