It is understandable per se that a server is occasionally busy. But this error message appears several times every single day. Moreover, I also tend to get it when trying to access my own account. It was not exactly a search I was trying to perform.
The more than occasional overload is one thing. What bugs me more than that, is that if Technorati is to be believed, I have not posted anything in this blog for the last 37 days. The last post reflected by Technorati is this one from 12th July. None of the 104 posts I have made since that exist, as far as Technorati is conserned. All of them have been binged to Technorati both automatically and manually.
My support request on 27th July, [Feedback] Error report #37751], is unanswered. What should I conclude? Maybe Technorati does not want me as their user.
I know it is a free service. But something which does not work is not a service, however free it may be.
