Not always, but I sometimes see the page load appear to stall with the surveys.cnet.com.
I don't know the answer, but suspect it is something to do with blocking ads with AdBlock. Do you use that as well?
While browsing forums but often when when previewing message replies, FF gives "Waiting for surveys.cnet.com". This is followed by a long wait and page not found message. Various messages appear in the status bar at one time or another but this one seems to cause problems. Not a biggie. Just FYI
