That's a CNet domain mostly used for advertising, I think. You can block it in your hosts file without any negative effect on the forum, as far as I know. If you can't: undo the change in hosts.

Don't block it entirely...

In reply to: Re: i.i.com.com

Cnet also uses it for many of the images used throughout the site, so blocking i.i.com.com entirely will result in rendering issues and, in some cases, a loss of functionality.

Blocking i.i.com.com will render download.com almost unusable and also it will be a tedious task to read the Cnet forum and post to it.

Then they should fix it . . .

99% of the time when loading stalls, it's always waiting on i.i.com.com.

I have the same issue on the USA Today website. The page never seems to load completely showing waiting for i.i.com.com.

Sublime suburban chariot

High on style and technology, the 2019 Volvo XC90 is an incredibly satisfying everyday crossover.
