Annoying as hell, the main list of threads constantly re-centers itself on my Android phone, I can't figure it out. Is it an ad or resize or center/align=center thing?
Is it clownface? Makes it really hard to focus on the stuff I WANT to read.
Help!

Here's how my problem unfolds.
I read all the other forums news feeds Craigslist searches bouy reports, NOAA forcast pages etc then come on over here by using a desktop shortcut on my phone which loads the index/threadlist (surfer discussion).
That page loads and I can read the first thread sublect before my aging eyes go all blurry, so that's when I reverse pinch my screen to enlarge it so I can read it.
The new more age friendly sized screen lasts about 1-2 seconds before is re-centers to the top of the list and I repeat this sequence over and over trying to beat that recentering effect by reading desperately.
Anyone? Should I just leave again? Surely it's not another Anti-Scam conspiracy? No?

Use the Chrome Browser and install the AdBlock and UBlock add ins and you won't have this problem. It will also eliminate most if not all of the ads on the site and pages will load faster too.

You could also use the Brave browser as well and you will achieve the same effect as above.

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

Hey team scam, what’s up man?
Good to see you’re still alive and surfing
I’m not seeing the same issues, but pretty often pages load so f’n slow that I can’t even read stuff here

I think in desperation to generate ad revenue they've flooded the website with ads. I don't know what these ads have done for their revenue numbers but I do think that the ads have messed up the viewing experience for visitors to the point that they are reducing the number of site visits and have driven people like me to install software to strip the site of advertising content.

Random, sounds like your speed issues are the result of the above. If you take the steps I mentioned in my first post your viewing experience should improve.

Cowabunga indeed!
I was using chrome with no additional ad blocking, ads if that is what's been causing my problem haven't been an issue except here. I am not surprised the devilish surfer marketing machine would cause more problems for my phone than 99% of all the sites I have been to.
Using Brave seems to solve the problem but, it is slower than I was led to believe when I originally downloaded it.
Anyway I am stoked and in the water enough now(despite relatively flat summer) that coming here doesn't just bring me down. Not this year.
