Is SSRN Overwhelmed Right Now?

It took almost nine days from the time I submitted a piece until it moved from "Author-Approved" to "Approved."  I submitted a revision on April 3 and it's now April 6, and it's still sitting there as "Submitted."  During most of the year, revisions seem to get approved in a matter of hours.  I'm assuming, on account of "submission season," SSRN is also inundated.

Jeff,

Kevin Jon Heller has blogged about this topic over at Opinio Juris, and in his latest post (you clan click on his original post from there) he includes his correspondence with the relevant party at SSRN: http://www.opiniojuris.org/posts/1175587633.shtml

They may be just reluctant about you and have your name and picture on some SSRN bulletin board. I always check the post-its on the store's cash register to see if they name me as a no-checks guy.

So what's up with the self-referential contracts paper? I've been trying to download it for a while and it's broken :(
