I wasn't quite sure where to put this thread since there's already a dedicated Steam thread in the games forum, but I haven't been able to find any help there.
Basically Steam is telling me that the Steam servers are too busy to handle my request and that I should try again in a few minutes. Well, it's been telling me that for six days straight now and I'm starting to get really annoyed. This is a very recent thing and I've never had this problem before in the three or so years I have been using Steam.
I've been directed to the Steam Support page many times and tried everything on it several times to no avail.
