After how many years one would think Valve would be able to figure out adequate server capacity for these damn sales.

This might be one reason Steam sales are no longer so generous--devs have figured out how to game the system:

Developers who raised their price then slapped sales on it for summer sales.

That wouldn't surprise me a bit. In the end, it's the bottom line price, not the percentage off, that I'm going to bit on, and honestly, if it's more than ten bucks I'm barely glancing at it nowadays. Five, really.

I've become very particular, very choosy.

In the UK I think to class as a sale and the relevant percentage off the product it has to have been at the claimed higher price for 28 consecutive days within the last 6 Months.

So bumping the price up just before a sale can still be lawful as long as it's been at that price before for 28 days in the previous 6 months. If not then it is illegal in the UK and normally I think Trading Standards prosecute for infringements.

So I strongly suspect that (at least in the UK) you'll find the claimed sale price does fit the 28 day criteria... especially for recent titles released in the last 6 months.
