+1 I think I have to apologize to the Operations team for the the wording I have chosen for the title of this thread. In hindsight, this issue was minor. I was taken aback by the combination of the fact that we (at WM-IT) were contacted by a journalist (which, in hindsight, put on us some pressure about trying to understand the causes of the problem); we were in fact experiencing some problems (both Wikimedia Italia's office and myself at home use Fastweb as ISP); and, finally, I have misjudged the information contained in the status page. > This could have been remediated by either a) the intermediate provider > fixing or working around the issue b) us disabling the use of that > provider temporarily c) the affected ISPs (like Fastweb) disabling the > use of that provider temporarily.
