Site performance is a goal so if it's reproducible I'd like to take a look at it.
First guess would be maybe threads with a lot of youtube embeds because that's about the heaviest thing you can but on the site, but it shouldn't block the thread actually rendering.
I thought that maybe others were having the issue, but I've been noticing my internet feels kinda slow a lot lately, especially on mobile/4G connections. I'll try to nail down and reproduce the issue if it reoccurs.

No it isn't.
Except it's not just a static image, loading a thread with a youtube video ends up making 16 more requests if you have video embedding off vs. on. It loads up an iframe, that has a static picture in it, plus a bunch of JS and tracking BS.
The following users say it would be alright if the author of this
