Excessively long login time--about 40 seconds.

When I access from Safari I'm taken to the start of the login process (Welcome, Guest page) where I press the "Sign in" link.  Immediately a new page pops up asking me to sign in.  So far, all is well and good--working as I expect it to.  I make sure the Apple ID and password are correct and press the "Sign In" button.


Now the questionable state occurs.  When I press the "Sign In" button to complete the login process I'm presented with a blank page that stays presented for about 40 seconds and then the login completes and I'm presented with my "Your View" start  up page. 


The forums then operate normally, i.e. fast, for a while but the long delay also happens several times a day when I access the "Apple Support Communities" link at the top of the page.  The only difference is that the page doesn't always go blank when accessing that link.  Sometimes it is as if Safari has frozen at the click of the link but 40 seconds later I'm presented with the initial page one expects to see when accessing that link.


The question--why does it take so long from the press of the "Sign In" button to the completion of the login?  I'm on many different discussion forums and the Apple discussion forums are the only ones that takes more than a couple of seconds at most to login.


This long delay happens when accessing the discussion forums from my iPad 4th Gen too.


Am I the only one this is happening to or is it 'normal' for the login process to take so long?  Perhaps it has to do with "My View" and if I had a less complex setup the delay would be shorter.  Anyone know for sure?

    I don't think that is normal because it is not happening for me everything is normal. I don't really know where your problem comes from but maybe it's just your internet connection that blocks when it connects to the apple's server or something like that.
