Why is this big deal being made by several people over PRPnet finding so many more primes than LLRnet? I recall a recent rally where it was just the opposite. It all evens out in the long run. It's just randomness.

Also, reference clumps followed by droughts and vice versa in something that is randomly distributed: In the famous words of one well-known mathetmatician here: pure jibberish. A clump can be just as easily followed by another clump instead of a drought, which makes it even a larger clump. The same applies to droughts. Any attempt to start testing after a long drought in anticipation of a coming clump is akin to the gambler's fallacy.
