Will be equally fascinating to see exi-chat treated this way! What
about numbers of individual posters? My hunch is that during frenzies
such as the dreaded g*n vortex, there was a rising number of posts in
a few interrelated threads from two or three vociferous
loons^H^H^H^H^Hindividuals. During such fits, I'd guess cooler heads
first tried the distraction tactic of enticing alternative topics,
but probably got tired and fell silent for a while until the fires were doused.
