Maybe it worked too well, and they had to slow the flow down?

I would not trust the "follow the herd" mentality on anything.

I just got in an Internet fight over the demise of the Airbus A380, none of the "follow the herd" people chanting Boeing outfoxed them had an explanation for the major sponsorship and majority sales going to Persian Gulf countries. They would rather look like fools than to accept my theory based on tons of actual data and an event/experience I remember from 35 years ago.

The herd goes where the herd goes, there is no mind to it.

On a lighter note, today was the first time the funny Gifs showed up for me - hilarious.
