Well, even I wouldn't go that far. AOL, like any giant site, has a
tendency to have the occasional bad day where it sends out thousands
of erroneous error messages. But those are usually easy to spot; when
you have fifty of your AOL subscribers suddenly generating errors,
it's a good idea to give them a day.
