Update - We're looking into site performance issues now. A detailed postmortem will be posted once we gather all of the details, but right now we have narrowed the problems down to elevated traffic to our backend SQL servers which slowed the Fool.com and Premium newsletter services to a halt. The site was stabilzed by stopping the SQL queries causing the problem and we are still tracking down the source.
