I'm pretty sure they are stalling for time @mindtrap.
I am also pretty sure that the much higher than usual volume on Bittrex and gradual uptrend in the price of Steem for about 48 hours is a signal that Justin/"they" are trying to accumulate Steem by buying it. This pattern began at approximately 10am US Pacific time on March 4th, and is still running; volume at about $180,000-200,000 per day, up from about 1/8th of that. And the trading has been "aggressive," meaning there are almost no downspikes.
So, I'm thinking we need to do everything we can to boost at least 5-6 of our consensus witnesses so far out of range that it becomes economically idiotic to try to buy enough Steem to unseat them.
There's a bit of a lull right now, with the previously HUGE buy wall having gone back to its usual pattern of many more small orders... just six hours ago, Bittrex had lots of 20,000, 30,000, 50,000 Steem buy orders... those have dried up a bit... but that should be watched, and we should have MAJOR campaigns to get people to not only make sure they have voted for witnesses, but also those people who HAVE voted for witnesses — but did so "a long time ago" need to check their voting and see if they aren't voting for some deactivated/obsolete witnesses, and move their votes "up."
We're certainly not out of the woods yet, so let's not get too comfortable...
