I don't know about the in academic community but in the general special
intrest net groups the novelty seems to have worn off. Also, once a topic
has been discussed it becomes old news and goes into the 'here we go again'
file. Lastly, there is always the holiday slowdown where people who
celabrate the holidays in December have better things to do then plant
themselves in front of this stupid tube unnecessarily.
