Yes, it is a common perception, and the numbers bear it out.

No one can really deny that article submissions are down, site traffic 
is down, and list traffic is down.  It's all right there in front of us.

That's why IMO it's our job to step out particularly strongly and show 
that WE believe in this thing.  *IF* in fact, we do...  But if we don't, 
then we can't really expect anyone else to, can we?
