What the fuck is that?

Every time I post today, the post confirmation page hangs up and there's a

Waiting for xslt.alexa.com...


in the status bar.

This doesn't happen daily, but maybe once a week or so the site will go through a period where it hangs up for 5-10 seconds on the confirmation page. Having to click that 'view your post' link or whatever it says after I get sick of waiting for it to process makes me want to punch an elephant.

Of course when I post this thread it goes right through with no wait. :x

Minimal hangup on that post as well. Fuck you internets!

Okay, got it for a second there.

It actually says...

Connecting to xslt.alexa.com...

(yes, I'm timing it now)

Also, while I'm being nosey, what is the point of the post confirmation page? Is it just a cheat to boost page views? Kinda seems that way.

The 'connecting to...' think also hangs up the pages when you click a 'go to last post' link to enter a thread. Super duper annoying.

Ooooh, that was a good one. 21 seconds!

I removed it for now. It's the alexa tracking.

Kinda figured. Why does the lag only happen here? This is the only site I've ever seen it happen on.

They might not have Alexa tracking installed. If it happens all the time, I'll leave it off. If it's a rare thing, it just means Alexa's site was having problems today.

It's just a sometimes thing. Am I the only person that's ever mentioned it?
