Business is about making money. The more the better.
Just posting on the board here most likely caused a few to go
searching for them just from curiosity.

There is another possibility (one which I think I saw happening when Guy and
I were buying DS8641's, which we previously discussed here), which is that if
multiple vendors have stock, an initial order might buy up the ones with the
cheapest price, and a second order will wind up being met from a different
dealer's stock, one with a higher price.
