ever since I joined the forum it has had this problem - when you hit "reply" it takes forever for the screen to be ready. Basically the white box appears but it takes ages before the cursor appears or you can type.
I have wondered if this is because of the huge list of smilies that is loading at that point in the process....

I have experienced the same problem and found it to be intolerable when I'm using a very slow computer. I believe it's the emoticons which slow things down; if you use a browser which allows you to disable the automatic downloading of images such as Mozilla Firefox, you can see a huge difference is response time though the pages look quite bland and the editing features above the respons box are no longer identified unless you pass the cursor over them. (Firefox, Tools, Options, Content, uncheck "Load images automatically")
