I just saw this reversal of “slow to a crawl” in an online post. Googling it, there seem to be a fair number of examples that aren’t obviously wordplay:
Currently if one binds lots of event listeners on document or window , i.e. components/directives used via ngFor, application can crawl to a slow.
I tried everything under the sun to get it working, but every time the game loaded in to a match it would crawl to a slow. Amidst this troubleshooting – I decided to enable the steamVR feature where it will show you in the Vive headset when you are getting serious dropped frames.
The game will crawl to a slow (The music slows down too…) and for about 5-10s I get about 1-2 frames per second.
After a random period of time lets say 3 days my internet connect will crawl to a slow from 200Mbs to only a few kbs however as soon as I reboot the SuperHub 2AC it will run super quick again.
Some examples have a noun after “slow”, which makes it more grammatically comprehensible:
The layout was decently exciting and didn’t crawl to a slow pace in unneeded places.

Is there a magic way I could embed graphics into my documents without having my program crawl to a slow snail mode?
