For one it doesn't make sense and doesn't need to make sense because i wasn't talking about them, for other it makes perfect sense because it explains that the "thing" showing the server status can in some cases show incorrect server status, one of them being a deadlock.

Simple enough for you? I can dumb it down more if necessary.
Do you even know what you are saying?

Why don't you just say "Server status thing isn't always accurate, use #status in IRC"
