Is it plausible that Godaddy's internal network only normally has a few 
thousand BGP routes?  210 x a few thousand would run most modern gear out

The "my DNS is broken, are we really being DDoS'd on udp/53 at the same 
time?" thing, I've seen, and I can imagine it being very confusing to 
someone seeing it for the first time.
