Those graphs look suspiciously like we weren't purging bouncing addresses
from the mailing lists and then started doing so.  The sudden drop at the
start of the flattening of the curve in particular looks a lot like a
one-time address purge followed by ongoing application of a stricter
bounce policy.

That doesn't explain all of the change, but it does make it seem less
