Hi all,

Recently I've noticed that plugin support pages are loading extremely slowly on wordpress.org and I just wanted to verify that the problem I'm seeing is indeed a problem and not somehow related to my computer's configuration.

To check go to any plugin support page, such as these:


Most of these support pages have been loading extremely slowly the past few days (not sure how it was before.)

Further, take a look at view source and you'll find this code:

<script type="text/javascript">
  document.write('<scr'+'ipt src="http://crazyegg.com/pages/scripts/23144.js?'+(new Date()).getTime()+'" type="text/javascript"></'+'script>');

What it's trying to load from CrazyEgg is this Javascript file:


But that file returns "410 Gone"; maybe it's a broken analytics tracker? How I found out was I was iframing the support page and debugging resultant HTML and I keep keeping an error on that file. It took me awhile to realize it was a problem on wordpress.org and not a virus or errant browser extension.

Something to fix?
