I disagree that it was the Internet or Time-Warner's part of it. According to my pings yesterday to The Motley Fool, the pings were running quite fast:

$ ping -c 5 boards.fool.com
PING uisg4.x.incapdns.net ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=250 time=14.4 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=250 time=18.5 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=3 ttl=250 time=14.9 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=4 ttl=250 time=13.9 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=5 ttl=250 time=15.5 ms

--- uisg4.x.incapdns.net ping statistics ---
5 packets transmitted, 5 received, 0% packet loss, time 4019ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 13.986/15.488/18.523/1.606 ms

I insist that the problem was with the Fool's servers (at least in my case), not the Internet.
