Default Why allow massive MS?

I just saw a screenshot of a dude who got 250K MS ping in GW.

That's over a 4-minute response time.
Firstly I wonder how it's possible to have actually seen and recorded it, secondly I have to wonder how he wasn't disconnected by that point, does GW usually allow such massive lag in ping?
Am I missing something here?

Anet has stated itself the in-game measurement performance monitor should not be relied on for measuring ping. The spikes happen all the time, you don't actually get a delay of a couple minutes unless you're about to dc. Get and good laugh out of it.

Ive had 80k pings before and that was mainly due to dragon fest a few years ago - an everyone had probs ( think we even had a redux because of it ).
Heck ive had visual lag and then rubberband and yes there was no change to the perfomance icon ( or ping icon as some call it ).
Ive had a chr leveling itself in dwarf boxing and wasnt going for survivor but almost had r1 - no sign of any lag and suddenly with no warning i was dead on the floor and countdown to leave the dungeon - didnt even see what killed me and no signs of any lag.When i appeared bk in gunners there was also several others who died because of same thing , i could lol at it but they couldnt.

Player was probably using a gamecam program to record it.

My personal record is 1.7 mil, and that actually lasted for the entire JQ match. When I could finally move I saw the your team was victorious message. This was caused by my pc and Internet tho, which were both older than gw itself.

The ping is not always the fault of you or ANet. It's often a screwed up router somewhere in between.
(A Router is not just the little device you have on your home network. Your signal goes through many of them on the way to and from ANet. )
