Only 1380 out of 2.2 million results failed? That's a failure rate of only 0.062%! They should consider themselves blessed to have a fax machine that doesn't need to be kicked every so often to get it to behave! -- (talk) 15:35, 24 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I guess they were more concerned that this had been going on for 10 years without a fix. Still, point taken, a remarkably low failure rate. (talk) 19:50, 24 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
