Ah, but what is their user base like?  I doubt it's anything near the
sheer size that d.net's is (300k +).  From the number of .plans that
I've seen with something like "stats fell over, need to re-run" I think
the d.net guys are hard pressed to keep things on an even keel as it is.
Just the fact that things seem to run relatively smoothly goes to show
what a good job they do.  Remember, things could be *a lot* worse than
what they currently are.
