Everyone reading these comments goes to check for themselves. "Yes, it is slow" they moan, then go on to retry to see if there's been any improvement, which there won't be. So they try again and its slower still. "Gosh, this is bad. Time to berate the platform." comes the discontented mutter as they post their confirmation of a pending 'shambles', constantly pressing refresh all the while.
