Myth: Doing logistics before and after downtime is less risky because there aren't as many people logged onto the server.
Reality: Doing logistics around downtime is no safer than any other time and has more to do with what time zone the people in your area are located in. There aren't as many carebears logged in, true. You're less likely to get caught by roaming blobs as well, but PVPers wait until the server goes down and are often the first ones to log back in after the servers go up...why? Because people think that downtime = safetime.
