I'm getting a few second delay after the click.

But I just changed a router so I didn't report it yet. I don't think it's scripts but there is some work on the site underway so that's all I know.

I had upgraded my router firmware and needed to change the DNS over to Google DNS.

All good and speedy again.

I've been looking at that 3/4/5 second delay for quite a number of days.
No change made at my end.
Now it's gone.

Good job.........all it takes is managerial muscle.
