It can be while I'm switching between specific forums or when I refresh the page.
Usually, I'll get the Server Busy message for a couple of minutes before I can get back on.
Is this happening to many SF members?

We're working on it. If I'm around and notice it I can restart things to try to get it back on track, but if not it tends to go away within 10 minutes or so.
