As someone who has administered a system used world-wide by hundreds
of thousands of people, let me say that from time to time screwups will
happen. The real question is how often, and when they do, how quickly
are things fixed?
MSU's computer infrastructure is pretty damned decent. MSU's mail is
pretty good, only at times stumbling under the intense pressure of all
the spam it deals with.
I think this is a digital tempest in a teapot.
