It will die down eventually, but I don't even think that its reached its peak yet (hard to believe, yes). There'll be so many areas of the interwebs that this hasn't reached, we can definitely expect this in future.
I think it will go completely crazy in here when the product is actually released and just be nuts for awhile then settle down to a more normalized growth pattern. I do think that "awhile" could be a fairly lengthy period of time however.
I get the feeling more moderators will need to be hired soon to keep up with the overwhelming amount of duplicate and off-topic threads
There's still hope for a couple of others to use the inline moderation tools before release!
