I considered the same thing as you, initially. Went back and looked at
the raw headers though, and the early Received headers - shows the
messages were still coming in over the course of the weekend rather then
just say Friday night and then it was a queue purge.
My filters kicked in on Sat evening once I added something to counteract
the whitelist for nanog's mails (going through nanog servers), so I'm
missing alot of the later spew from Sunday.
