Our clients sometimes wants to be flooded like that just to see what
happens and if they can handle it (fe. if their operators have a clue
what is actually happening, whether their system automagically
switches to backup lines, if their ISP is able to help them or how
long does it take to fully recover... or maybe they are just bored ;-)).
