Comment (by Otto42):

 Not necessarily. Some of the problems I've seen were a broken cron (future
 posts not working etc), while other uses of fsockopen to external hosts
 worked fine (rss feeds showed on dashboard without issues). These were
 basically cases of bad DNS or some such, where a server could resolve
 anybody else except its own hostname, or if it resolved it, it could not
 connect back to itself (loopback issues). I have no idea why (I am not a
 network admin guru), but the issue is surprisingly commonplace.
