define 'immense scale' ... no calls here... so 'immense scale' in this
case is 'nothing'.

No, one thing you might say is that increased (channelling Vijay here...)
calls from customers means increased 'Support Cost' and decreased profit
margin over time. I'd also say:
1) how is this different from a large scale network outage for a provider
2) how is this different from any other large worm outbreak thing
3) is this blackworm all over again? (all hype no bite... byte?)
