Sometimes www.asp.net is too slow to load……So it would be better to change the style of that to that of StackFlow.

That's an interesting conclusion. I don't think we'll be switching to "the style of that to that of StackFlow" at any point in the near future. We've made major improvements to site performance over the past 2 years, and our results at
http://www.webpagetest.com/ for the forums, while showing room for improvement, are pretty good. And the forums home page test results from London are currently actually a bit better than that of Stack Overflow. We
will likely be looking at refreshing the design here on the ASP.NET Forums in the coming months, for further performance improvements as well as better mobile accessibility and user experience.

I haven't experienced this either.

for me, i've not really noticed any significant differences (although i do spend most of my forum time here at forums.asp.net).
you might use Eric Lawrence's excellent free tool fiddler2 (http://fiddler2.com) for timing comparisons.
depending where you are in the world, it's possible that you require more hops to forums.asp.net than to stackoverflow.com:
from a command prompt, run these commands several times each and compare results:
also, you might want to compare results of tracert and
fiddler2 and different times of the day and on different days of the week.

perhaps you percieve it as too slow as you actually need to wait a bit to be able to reply while on SO you can directly reply to a thread.

Not, as that feature's not implemented on these forums. In the past I brought this up to have all replies on one page and have the possibility to quote from all other replies Way too often I see members starting different replies to quote others making threads
very long and tedious to follow. On the other hand, some members add pages and pages worth of source code so that might also slow down the initial rendering. Egg vs chicken story...
