MySpace: The emperor has no clothes?

By Steve Outing

Just tried to log in to MySpace:

MySpace Too Busy
That was the entire page. Can’t MySpace at least come up with a more elegant error message?

As often as not I see this kind of thing on MySpace — page elements and ads that don’t load, etc. For arguably the most popular site on the Web, wouldn’t you expect Google-like performance? I wonder how MySpace gets by with amateurish stuff like this. Is that part of its charm?
