Shrinking number of pages

Noticed a few days ago that the last page (page 15) on New Posts had fewer threads. Now there is only 14 pages showing. Are the pages getting longer, or are fewer threads now being classed as New Posts?
You must not have heard.

ARRSE has been bought by Cadbury's so now you get less content for the same price.
Oi! What about us long term socks? Where's the weekend in Barbados promised for being ARRSE vermin and making Bugsy cry?
