Wikipedia going down without a temporary explanation page is roughly of the

down with no explanation, microsoft.com going down with no explanation, and
"Top 5 website" means we have that kind of use, perception, stature -- and a
similar scale of response within the general public if it suddenly doesn't
work. Most members of the public do not have the insight you or I would.
