re: Yes and yes to an extent. It's possible that we should remove this strategy for logged-in users. A huge amount of the traffic is still fresh users...
 

I'm saying the first thing because I'm surprised the website is so blazing fast even if I'm logged in. Okay I see that if I disable JS, there's some basic stuff loaded that probably would be the safe for all users, but even so, the rest of it seems to load so fast; the database calls in the backend (on first look there didn't seem to be a lot of caching there, but I might have seen wrong), and also the fact that Ruby is quite a slow language as far as I know. I tend to have speed issues running Laravel, but then again I'm a cheapskate that runs it on $5-10 Digital Ocean servers :P
