That's a great theory and not a bad piece of memetic engineering in
its own right. But I suspect the truth is more mundane: that the others,
like myself, got busy with end-of-year/pagan ritual stuff, missed a
few days of the list, and now are finding it virtually impossible to
catch up due to the traffic and the fact that posters aren't being
very careful with keeping the subject lines in sync with the discussion
topics (hint, hint).
