I am still trying to find somewhere to post to report this problem.

If try to visit and post in Feedback, or if I try just to VISIT the "Advertisements" topic there, the only page that loads is this:
"Page could not be loaded,... "

and I cannot even post the whole page message here because when I do, I am given a message box, "Oops!,....some stuff,...."

What browser are you using? It works for me on mobile/chrome.

Did you try turning your ad blocker off temporarily to see if that helps?

AMAZING! It does help. I just tried in the Advertisement topic in the Feedback board.
(My curiosity is then, why?)

Great! I don't understand it all, but there was a discussion in the Mentor forums a couple days ago where @mfb had the same problem and did some experiments to figure it out.

I also block ads (using a different method). Most web sites have a time-out or retry-count limit for ad links. They may loop for awhile retrying to load the ad(s), but eventually decide the ad repository must be down and skip to the page content.

I presume the mindset of the page owners is such that they want their content available even if the advertisers are off-line.
