It's a good idea to give others "the benefit of the doubt". Although there
are certainly those who "do it while at work", it seems to me that the
greatest activity is in early evening (after work). [This is more difficult
to determine because one must look at the headers to determine the time zone
of the poster, and speculate as to what their working hours might be].
Perhaps weekend activity is low because people spend them on holiday, or
performing vintning activities?
Amongst those who "do it at work", some of them may lack internet access
from home, and many of them have their employer's permission to do so
(during coffee and lunch breaks, as well as during "slow times").
Also a great many of us are retired, and thus anything we do during "office
hours" is at no one's expense and time but our own.
