I'm a senior level security analyst that works for a decent sized mid-size bank. One of our colleagues has engaged IT about access to this site ( She communicated that that this site is great resource for her, but doesn't load properly. It doesn't load because of all the trackers, ads, and behavior analytics built in. Our security products block the trackers and ads, and as a result your site doesn't load. Normally I wouldn't take the time to create a dummy account here to tell you, but with the sheer volume and amount trackers embedded I decided to take time out of my Friday to give you a heads up. It's pretty bad.

Just going to the main page, my browser contacted 55 IPs in 6 countries across 41 domains to perform 226 HTTP transactions. That's a lot for just one page load.
