Google's DoubleClick cookies. when blocked, slows websites to a crawl
My browser is set to block all third party cookies. The only blocked third party cookie that seems to be slowing down sites like Computer World belongs to Google's DoubleClick ad serving service. I normaly don't visit Computer World, but I know it takes close to 5 MINUTES for my webbrowser to process Computer World's HTML after it's been loaded. During the wait my webbrowser displays the same cookie's URL from DoubleClick the whole time. Same thing happens if I refresh the page... no website for 5 minutes, just the url from Google's DoubleClick cookie trying to force it's way into my browser.
I know most cookies track users online, but what else could the DoubleClick cookies do? I know DoubleClick harrasses my webbrowser to load it's cookie's instructions if I want a website to fully load!
Visited Computer World twice. That's all I'll ever do. They're history!

Discovered Webhosting Talk hosts Google DoubleClick cookies, but this forum still loads fast with no problems even though all third party cookies are blocked.
DoubleClick must have different types of tracking cookies. Regular ones that can be easily blocked without slowing website loads, and others that persist on accessing your browser when blocked, slowling load times to minutes.
Could it also be something the webmaster of Computer World has done that would cause DoubleClick cookies to slow their website's load when blocked?
