One might expect this to occur whenever entropy decreases. OTOH, I suppose that a much more mundane reason is more likely. Rolling Eyes

To try to figure out what your Rolling Eyes could possibly mean, I've just reread and pondered my dogeared Clausius' "On the Concentration of Rays of Heat and Light, and on the Limits of its Action"; regrettably, I must report that no entropic principle behind declining post counts presents itself to me. In fact, a careful reading of the relevant passages in Landsberg's “Can Entropy and “Order” Increase Together?” establishes that no such relationship can be inferred in this case. This looks more just like "board clean-ups" and server farts at work (which, I agree, is decidedly more mundane - still no clues on the Rolling Eyes , though).
