I imagine that I am considered to be in that group.  I apologize if
people think that this is a problem.  I think it was Greg who pointed
out that this sort of thing happens occasionally.  IIRC, the last big
flamewar we had was close to a year ago.  Like this one, it meandered
all over the place.  After a few days, it slowed to a trickled and a few
days after that it was over.  If you notice, the traffic has slowed
consideerably after a 36-48 hour period of heavy posting.

I think it is just a matter of perspective.  These OT threads are
happening now, and so have an immediacy in our minds.  After a few
weeks, they will fade from memory and things will appear as though they
have always been normal.
