The site slowdown tonight (Saturday night) is due to database load -- Saturday nights are one of our busiest times and we're still going to need to do some performance tweaks to our new setup over the next few days as we run into load issues. (Some problems only show up once all y'all start banging on the site!) We've made a few changes now that will improve things for some people, and will do a more permanent fix later on tonight or tomorrow morning once the traffic dies down, since doing it now would just increase database load.

Site performance may continue to be rocky on and off for the next few days until we get everything tuned the way it needs to be tuned -- thank you for your patience!

In the future, you may want to try restarting your browser or clearing cache instead of editing the post repeatedly - editing the post doesn't change the proxy URL for the image, so it doesn't force the browser to reload the proxied image.

I do remember seeing your report about the extra content appended at the end of the edited entry, but I was sure it was caused by a browser extension and not our site. Based on these comments, I've narrowed it down to the issue mentioned here:

I'm using my Android phone, and AFAIK I have no extensions in Firefox on it. I did have the Pinterest app; could that have caused it? I've deleted it, so we'll see what happens.

I've also had the problem on my laptop; will check tomorrow.

Yes, it looks like the same functionality is enabled on Android when you install the Pinterest app.

Thanks. On my laptop now, I see that I do have the Pinterest add-in installed. I barely use Pinterest and have little reason to keep it, either the app or the add-in; out they'll go.

But why can't you contact Pinterest and tell them that their code is causing you this problem (and losing them subscribers)?

You're welcome to try contacting them yourself! When I looked just now, they required a username and password to access their Developer Support area. The regular contact form seems geared toward reporting content, not software bugs.
