we.ve been experiencing similar.  In our case it's a combo of website scraping bots and spammers, but they've been hitting the server so hard that we have had occasional moments where page creations and page loads will time out.

As Steve said...This site has been getting hit very, VERY hard.
Not only was the site hit hard in the background, but we had peeps lined up to be approved for membership in abnormally high numbers that would've wreaked havoc by posting spammy posts.
If we didn't have an approval system in place, we'd have had huge amount of spam postings.
If you're reading this Bobby...sending good thoughts for your forum...Go Get 'Em.
 
modified to add: Y'all need to thank WayOutWest/Steve for his hard work in keeping this site safe and working so hard to block a huge amount of IPs.

ditto over in the world of cars. I have had registration shut down completely for almost 3 weeks now, after banning 25-50 "new users" per day, and deleting 100s of spam posts. Shortest life span was a little less than 90 seconds.
