Honestly, I agree with this. I used to play on Stars/Tilt and I liked the speed of the cards when all-in. However, on Minted, several times I've been all-in with the best hand and as soon as I call or the villain calls, the cards are dealt instantly and the next hand starts being dealt, and if I blink, I miss what the heck happened. And, because I run so horribly bad, I get sucked out on constantly, so I get about 0.5 secs to enjoy getting my money in good before having to feel like crap that I got bad beat AGAIN. It's pretty tilting.
I don't think it's needs to be slowed down A LOT, just add an extra second or two in between the call and the flop, the flop and the turn, and the turn and the river when there's an all-in situation, so people that care can actually see what happens w/o having to look back on the HH.
