BEWARE: PC SPEAK - no problems, its only a "subset" of users!

I remember working at a large multinational financial organisation, and they would use the media releases saying "only affecting a small number of users" even when the entire datacentre went black, and it wasn't possible for ANYONE to access the service.

"Affecting" a small subset of users, because everyone else wasn't actually trying to use the service!
