Ok so i got a recommendation from adsense about content speed and that i wasnt passing their user first program.

I have 3 adsense ads on my site. With the ads there, i get the following during an audit:

61 performance
93 accessability
82 best practices

remove all ads and i get:

91 performance
97 accessibility
86 best practices

So am i to understand that in order to get into the adsenes user first program, i must remove slow loading adsense form my site?

Is this a joke?

You can do nothing, I would suggest you to stop caring about the insights. Speed is what matters the most :P

Some AdSense ad takes ages to load, some Amazon ads for example, how can you block Amazon? You can't.

There's no direct link between your audit score and page load times. A page with a score of 50 can be faster than one with a perfect score.

Take the recommendation (warning?) seriously and perform your own audit. Use your browser's Developer Tools to analyze your performance (switch off the AdSense ads for your own visits if that's possible, or use an ad blocker) and combine that with real user monitoring (RUM) data from Google Analytics (if that's what you use). Go to Behavior > Site Speed > Page Timings and switch to the "Avg. Document Content Loaded Time" rather than "Avg. Page Load Time" (which will include your AdSense ads). Look for your biggest offenders and bottlenecks.

Only then, when you find there's nothing left to optimize on your end, maybe you can say it's AdSense's fault/mistake.

I've noticed when I run Ghostery it complains that the doubleclick verify pixel is the culprit on slow page loading. I'm curious if running ads through DFP is any quicker than regular adsense or no difference at all? (or maybe worse?)

I've got 99/100 scores on google page test/performance test but adsense appears slow. I've noticed its fast on firefox, fast-ish on chrome and the doubleclick pixel is slow as molasses on Edge.
