I'll bet the disks in your "stack" are all relatively new disks from  
one of the more "aggressive" distributers.

Perhaps you'll find more info on some of the other lists/boards,fora  
that discuss such things because, as you pointed out, it's really not  
a Myth issue.

This is all totally hypothetical of course, as technically even  
discussing the matter in the US could be considered illegal, or at  
least a civil violation.
