The BOOKMARKS at GT.ru are here in the Forum area.
On any post thread (like this one), you will see the "Add Bookmark" button towards the top-right near the "Reply" button.
The recent enhancement was making this button MORE available then before. You can now "bookmark" threads that are locked or in areas that don't allow you to reply. This allows you to bookmark any number of important (to you) threads to find them more easily again in the future. You can see all your bookmarks using the "My Bookmarks" button in the top-left section of buttons: "Home" "Help" "Arcade" "Search" "Profile" etc.

But if someone's not charging for a VPN service, I'd question what their motives are. It's possible they're just a privacy advocate with pure motives, but it could also be a lot more sinister.

Reducing amount of bandwidth download/upload speed as bc22 mentioned are also very helpful…
This will reduce amount of CPU being used...
Also clearing DNS cache is also important...
example: DNS server overload in the case of a high number of visitors. Error messages like “DNS Server Not Responding” are a common and despised consequence.
