There's been quite a bit of discussion of this in the metrics
community. The flattening out appears to be largely in the /21-and-longer
area, such that folks who are filtering haven't seen as much of a
flattening as those who aren't. The link to the economic downturn is one
that Phil Smith suggested. That's a difficult causal relationship to
validate, though, regardless of how much sense it makes.
