Yes, we've seen a substantial increase over the past week or so, 
including several "correction" notices yesterday because someone at 
riaa.com aparently thought daylight savings time started on 1-April and 
the time zone mentioned in messages from part of the first week of April 
said "EDT (-0400)" instead of "EST (-0500)"...
