Top 10 reasons for Delta.com hang-ups

For the second day, delta.com has not allowed many of us to check-in online, view our itineraries, change flights, etc. The site is completely down now. Thought I'd start a Top 10 list for reasons why:

10. Delta canceled Julian Assange's tickets and now Wikileak's supporters are hacking into the site.

9. When it gets cold in Atlanta, the servers freeze up
8. The servers were used to run the heating system for the Metrodome....
7. AFA has filed interference charges against Delta.com for not promoting a negative enough image of the company.

Are you sure they simply didn't decide to go back to the way it was in 2008?

Or maybe bubba's hosting service (DL's ISP) forgot to pay their "light" bill?
