Even with the skip button, it's still a pain in the ass.
Cause like I went into the forum section and then wanted to go into the photos area by hitting the back button for the link. And of course, the animation started again, then I had to hit skip, then had to wait for the second page of animation, then I didn't even care to wait anymore. I just closed the window.
We all do pay quite a premium for highspeed internet for a reason. WE HATE WAITING FOR SHIT!!!!!! If I wanted to wait for content, I'd get the $10/mo dialup plan!!!!
