Excellent technique.  Pick a topic that is guaranteed in any universe
to generate a lot of posts (a short provocative question asked on
April Fool's Day), then stay above the fray, not posting until the
traffic dies down, and only then make a post expressly engineered to
try to start the traffic up again.  Rinse and repeat as necessary.

I bow at the feet of the master.
