If it is too slow for you, go into your User Contol Panel (User CP link at left of top menu), select 'Edit Options', and scroll down to the section named 'Thread Display Options'. You can de-select or select viewing signature lines, avatars, number of posts, or inline images. These all add up to the total amount of data that has to be downloaded everytime your screen refreshes (like every time you open a new thread). Some boards put a limit on the size of the image that can be used for an avatar (64kb or so) which minimizes the hit a little. If not, there may be some folks out inadvertently link to some rather large pics for their avatar images.
