IMHO that's the whole point of the site. It's slow.
I can play a move before breakfast, come back after supper and play another move. I can play slow enough to think about a move, but not be tied to the computer for the entire evening.
Also, I can play chess without worrying about DSL disconnects (the scourge of my life having left my beloved cable modem behind); and play without concern for time lag having a measureable impact on the game.
Also, and perhaps most important, I can sneak in a move or two from the office, over lunch, before heading home. I don't need to set aside even 20m of dedicated time to enjoy a game.
