    Advertisements and finance.Yahoo website performance

    There has been a continued deterioration of web page downloads due to advertisements on finance.yahoo. This appears to be from a lack of consideration towards users as to whether these ads are presented in a timely fashion. Part of this could be due to an effort to drive users to brokerage outlets where ads are not such a drag on performance, but require a funded account to avoid the lengthy web page downloads. It’s just another way Wall Street is screwing the public that doesn’t wish to be forced into brokerage commitments.

    Note that most of the ads are from brokerage firms whose ads are taking more time to download than in the past.

    There is NO argument that Yahoo shouldn’t be presenting ads in order to provide access to financial info. The argument is a perceived attempt to downgrade performance to force users into brokerage accounts.
