Default Zune Captain Kirk to Zune Scotty: We Need More Speed!

Is anyone else tired of seeing that icon in the Zune software? I've got the Zune software installed on all my PCs now, using it as my main music playing software rather than Windows Media Player, so I'm accessing the Marketplace and Social aspects of the Zune quite often. The problem is that the Zune servers really don't seem up to the task. Sometimes they're snappy when I'm browsing Marketplace content, and the audio previews usually happen quickly, but as soon as I go into the Social tab, it's very likely I'll be staring at that "loading" icon for 10+ seconds. It's been like this for months, so it's not just an isolated incident. I've also seen strange issues with the inbox - I'll delete a message, they'll vanish from the inbox, and a few minutes later they'll still show up on the new message indicator line. Are the social aspects of the Zune software really that popular? Or has Microsoft just under-allocated server resources for the Zune?
