I wouldn't exactly consider my cats to be backwaters. For those interested, I edit the ODP substance abuse and recreational drugs cats. While many people may not use drugs recreationally, almost certainly they know someone with a substance abuse problem, so this cat space would be relevant to most people. For whatever reason, a lot of these ODP cats just haven't been attracting editors. And, it turned out the biggest backlog I has to deal with was in the one notably commercial area of my cat space: substance abuse centers. I don't believe that there is a single editor in that branch, and that was where I was finding most of the submissions over a year old.
