    Both of my IE and FF loads slashdot.org using more than 20s,and still can't finish correctly sometimes. Slashdot.org is my homepage at the moment. It didn't happen before and I'm OK with all other websites. For example,loading WSF uses less than 2 seconds.

    What could be the course?

    Maybe a routing issue with your ISP. Loads fine here.

    Why would a Korean ISP block slashdot.org? o_O

    Yeah,I use Opendns.

    Is there any chance that it is caused by a virus or malware,because virus like to attack your homepage. But now whatever my homepage is,only loading slashdot.org is incredibly slow. Strange problem.

    Not block, simple problems with routing to Korea. How about orange juice got spilled on a box or a cable got loose? Things can happen. My ISP sometimes have problems and connections to certain sites/countries are slow. But the problems usually go away after a few minutes or hours.
