excessive ads and animation bog down my laptop
This topic needs revisiting by your web designers and marketing staff. Your ads on seeking alpha ruin the experience. They are excessive (35 just a few minutes ok as tagged by AdBlocker) and the amount of animation and quantity are too much for my Intel I5 processor. It slows down my whole computer.
Put up still ads, or something less obtrusive. But I can't use Seeking Alpha without an AdBlocker due to its heavy hit on performance - due to ADS.
