Also, if the site is one that users return to often, having a
consistent experience is important.
If it always takes 4 seconds to load a page, people will get used to
that, but if it can take between 1 and 10 seconds depending on server
load that is more annoying.

Any site will slow down given sufficient traffic, so you need to know
what traffic your site is designed for, and make sure it handles that
with some margin.

When overloaded, the site should ideally start to fail gracefully.
