Overclock.net's mobile platform horrible!

Was adding a few site favorites to my new tablet and tried accessing overclock.net forums. Never have I encountered such a frustrating monstrosity of a site on a mobile device! Slow, poorly designed, no login option (it only asks you to register) and tries incessantly to hide or keep you away from the desktop site. I breathed a sigh of relief as I finally managed to bring up the desktop site and log in. Once logged in, I clicked on a sub-forum and was stunned to find a huge prompt trying to force me back to the mobile platform! When I clicked on desktop option, it did not work, but kept me on the same page asking me to choose mobile or desktop.

The desktop version was working so beautifully before. This mobile version is the worst I have seen anywhere. Not going to mess with it anymore, overclock.net has been deleted from my favorites (I dont want to accidentally click on it again). May check back in a few months to see if things have been corrected, namely the desktop option working with no arm-twisting to force me to use some horrifically inferior mobile version. /rant over.

What browser are you using? I've found both enhanced mobile and desktop versions perfectly usable on mobile. Standard mobile version I'd agree with you on.

I can understand this if you are using the Standard mobile version. The enhanced version however is fine so far as I can see.
