Not as funny but just as appropriate as the original. Most online critics judge photos based on photography 101 and/or postcard esthetics.
I've found sites like PhotoSIG are only good for drawing attention to basic technical mistakes any intermediate photographer knows and can eliminate if she so chooses. 90+% of the critiques concentrate on the beginner metrics TOP lampoons: horizon tilted or in the middle of the frame, rule of thirds broken, "wrong" white balance, etc. Oh the humanity There are only very few good critics, even on LL.
Bob: I've never had problems with TOP loading in FF, been reading it for years - so the problem is definitely at your end. My vote is on malware as well; try Spybot S&D and a virus checker.
