The number of applications requiring the implementation of a custom web server is an insignificant fraction of the number of applications requiring a messaging system. I don't think anyone would dispute Haskell's ability to do low-level, raw networking, of the type that few people actually need to do. It's the higher level stuff where there's a huge amount of room for improvement.

You replied to someone discussing using Haskell at a CDN to implement
things like web servers by saying that Haskell wasn't suitable for
the task.
