A poor excuse for a thread, but I was wondering because I realized that I always click that link no matter what. Do you do the same?

No, I wait for it to load. In my mind, it's already processing, and clicking that link only forces it to start over.

I do sometimes if it takes a long time, but typically I tab to Facebook or something and come back to it later.

I always click it just because it is there and I like to believe if I click it I will get there faster!

It never takes more than 2 or 3 seconds for me to have it load, so I never bother with clicking on it. If it's a rare occasion where it is taking a while to load I might click it, but even then, I'll wait 15 seconds before doing anything.

The page is too quick to load for me to click on the link :D
I only click on that if the page is by some miracle loading for too long.

I usually wait until the page redirects. But if it won't load (which is in case with my mobile browser occasionally), I click the link.

Most times the redirect automatically works, so there is no need in clicking the link. Sometimes if the automatic redirect doesn't work, I do.

I always click because I can not be bothered to wait for it to load.

I always click it too. Which is funny because it will automatically redirect me if I wait a few seconds... I just don't want to wait for it. :p

Always, always and always. Even if I lost track and saw that it starts to automatically load, I click it anyway.

I always do. The destination page doesn't start loading until that screen ends, and I don't always enable automatic redirection anyway.

I was actually just staring at a screen like this! Half the time I click the link because I am impatient and I always feel like it helps. Other time it either goes too fast for me to click it or I just wait for it to load. In the past though, I used to always click it so I suppose I'm not completely out of that habit yet.

I almost always click it. I have little to no patience for that kind of stuff, as much as I'd like to believe. It's only occasionally that I wait for the page to load on its own without clicking the redirect.

Seeing as I open a lot of tabs when I open the browser, I usually don't, since in the time it takes to open everything, it automatically logs me in.

Sometimes, though, when PC's the only think I'm on, I click on it.

I'll do it generally when I am bored and need something to do haha. It's just like a shiny thing that grabs my attention because there isn't anything else on that page that can do so lmao.

Nah I just wait for it to load instead of it having to buffer another dang page on top of it. I'm patient enough lol. I wish the loading screen didn't exist and it just logged me in and redirected me without telling me though.

Usually, but when I'm on mobile, it redirects me before I can zoom in, aim, touch, etc.

Life is too short to move my cursor all the way to that tiny button and click it.

That and I always have multiple tabs open when I'm doing anything that would bring me to that button so as soon as I submit some sort of form, I'm already in another tab reading a thread or writing another post.
