I also have had problems with the CNET forums for the last couple of days. (Posting, etc.). We were notified of a problem by Lee, the forum manager, but it seems like things are better now..
How 'bout you? Are things better on your end now?
Hope this helps.
Using firefox and windows 7. Started past 2 days. Left click to find more info on CNET (only) article and get timed out or loads very slowly.
