I (and several other users at the same time) have been periodically experiencing extremely slow page loads (including, at times, pages erroring out after trying to load for a while).
It appears to affect all pages on all sites. Sometimes, pages will load quickly, while others take many seconds to load, if the requests succeed at all. Then it will work normally for a while, before happening again some number of hours later.
It's happened numerous times over the past week or so. I can't pinpoint exactly when it started.
Is this more DDoS attacks? Something else?
(there may well be better tags than just bug but the tag search doesn't seem to want to work very well right now because...well, see above)
