Usually downtime on the internet is a Bad Thing ™, whether it is network downtime or server downtime or any other malfunction.

If spam would end, even for just a while, the mail servers of the world would heave a collective sigh of relief. Whatever software that is making those spam botnets possible is also welcome to crash.

Who in their right mind would want these around?

Big Brother could use a break, don’t you think? They are working so hard.
That rounds off our little list. Care to add some of your own?
