Yes, it's so much more fun to blame keystone kops or incompetent service
providers for any sort of slowdown, rather than accept that scaling is hard
once you've passed size large.

The danger to the kops in question is that anyone who actually
solves the problem of increasing both the amount of processing
time per unit and the number of units processed is likely to make
alot more money in private industry, still, even in the wake of
the collapse of the equity bubble.
