I think submitting a reply is still obnoxiously slow. The post gets submitted into the database almost instantly. There's something else happening after that is being annoyingly stupid.
Replies are quicker to post today. What I find annoying is the top banner is cut off. I can only see the lower half of "Search", "Members", "Help" and the rest of the shortcuts on that line. I've decreased my font still no joy. I can't fine the "Home" button to go look at tweets.
