I feel sorry for Live Journal. It has like millions of people opening accounts everyday and think how many times you go and read peoples pages a day! (admittedly this does not work if this is your first time ever on LJ pages LOL).
It is so over run and yet still has a free service with no adverts. I have a paid account, and had no problems anymore, but still I think they are trying to get more servers all the time, and doing all they can :)
Popularity can be a curse!
