It appears that the high volume of messages today is messages that people sent last week. I'm assuming that they were caught in a moderation queue.
I'm also assuming that the Code Jam admins are going to shut down the mailing list during the contest. *If you have something to ask during the contest, ask code...@google.com <code...@google.com>.* We can't help you here.
