In I Borg, no one even mentioned the possibility that the weapon wouldn't work.
Which, given everything they knew, didn't make any sense.

How is it that you know more about the Borg than Geordi Laforge or Jean-Luc Picard? They didn't think their use of the weapon would "provoke" the Borg, why do you?
Again, the writers didn't think it through themselves even though their own writing later on pretty much spelled out that the viral program wouldn't work.

What makes you such an authority of the Borg? Once again, IF YOU HAVE A WEAPON THAT COULD DESTROY AN ENEMY HELL-BENT ON DESTROYING YOUR CIVILIZATION, YOU ARE MORALLY OBLIGATED TO USE IT!
If the Borg were constantly attacking the Federation with more than one Cube every 5 years or so (and it was even less than that), then I could take your side more. But it wasn't like that. The Borg weren't taking the Feds seriously and thus not reacting seriously, whilst a provocation WOULD get a serious response.
