The Internet is decentralized, and is run by adding new servers. If a particular site is overloaded with info, it may go down because it cant support the bandwidth, but then they just upgrade their hosting package. Hosting is cheap, and become cheaper everyday. I would be surprised if this site, which is huge, cost over $100 a year to run, unless they are "middle manned " by their host. Just won't happen. However, certain countries have poor infrastructure, and their infrastructure might not be able to keep up with rising demand, (even rising demand in the 3rd world), and certain areas may crash. But the web will be there.
