I don't think there's any cause for concern, Chai-on. This weekend was
Easter weekend and many schools are still on a Spring break. It seems
that we are particularly vulnerable to changes in the academic calendar
since we are almost exclusively a _de facto_ academic list.

I anticipate that volume and participation will increase shortly.

If you want to see who's listening, either try saying something very
controversial or address a question to someone in particular. Either
method seems to work well.

Perhaps you could try addressing comments to those you especially miss.

Of course, I would encourage others to make Chai-on feel better by
participating in current threads or launching new ones.

Anyway, I'm pleased to hear that you miss the input from some who have
been quiet relatively recently. OPE-L can be an addictive experience, can
it not?

PS: Riccardo, Simon (and, possibly Alfredo) have been experiencing
"technical problems", i.e. their servers have been down for some time.
Hopefully, these problems will be cleared up soon. Also, I don't think
Alan and Fred have returned yet from their brief respites.
