I'm still just scatching my head a bit (because I thought we were surmising most of this time that that is how it *should* be but often or "patternistically" wasn't, including the incidence of not being sanctioned; and the role of previous sanctions, etc.), but the good news is it doesn't really itch anymore!

One thing that did occur to me is that while I only discovered this place in March, I became more than anything a voracious archive reader. SO -- I am reading things in a very condensed fashion and as such they may have more of an impact and/or appear more prevalent than the actual pace at which they are typically seen. Indeed, the kinds of things I have been referring to in this thread are not much related to what I've seen since I got here (although my way of reading the current board actually has me skipping most of it). I also saw that starting in April and continuing for a few months is the slowest annual traffic time at PB. The archives from when the population was denser show many more positing that some kind of pattern exists. So that had an effect; and maybe I further assumed that many of them finally left disheartened, when it could be largely just related to the season and natural turnover.

Archive reading is piecemeal, unless one reads across all boards from each given time frame, which I don't. And in the archives it is easier to latch onto and selectively hunt down supporting data. Could be several or all of the above factors that resulted in me seeing things however I did, that magnified what in reality may be less common than it seemed. I wouldn't want to do that, and apologize for any extent to which I might have. :- )
