If the connection is slow, it is probably quite easy to fill some buffers, 
which would (possibly) per spec lead to closing the connection.
That is bad. The connection is working, but just a bit slow.

If send() can't temporarily process the data (like buffer it), 
it should, IMO, either throw an exception or perhaps better would be to
return false.
