Down, definitely down.  Call the White House!

It should be clear that the root cause here is a lack of regulation, so 
could someone phone Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) _urgently_ and advise him 
that the only way to stop problems like this happening in future is to 
ensure that the government has a firm grip of the steering wheel at all 
these web2.0 companies.  Also, rather than letting these trendy, 
fashionable Googlers attempt to fix critical systems like gmail, that real 
service problems like this ought to be fixed by accredited cyber security 
professionals, preferably ones which can demonstrate their computing 
ability by wearing a suit and tie.

If we've learned anything in the telecommunications world, it's that if any 
organisation can respond quickly to a problem and deal with it efficiently 
and effectively, it's a Government.
