..your analogy suggests all traffic was closed after the WTC fell.  
Not true, travellers were diverted to ground bound transportation.  

..a better analogy would be "ban all use of wintendo on internet".  ;-)

..I dunno how many has been killed by swen.  The stats on downtime and
costs on wintendos in the US, suggests we have 4 9/11 a year worldwide,
comparing with the insurance stats of the one in 2001,  but I would
think the loss of human life is less, except possibly from the indirect
ramifications.  Evaluating this would require a lot of analysis work,
which I don't quite see Microsoft sponsoring.  ;-)
