Can't you just picture someone, later on in the main effort, where they don't care if the exponent is prime or not but they're only testing composites because they're at a lower n-value than this project.

(new person to the effort): I just noticed something remarkable about the sieved exponents, and I'm wondering if this has been recorded before. EVERY SINGLE n-value is composite. At the moment, I'm attempting to figure out why this is. Does anyone have any theories?

(Old hand in the project): That IS amazing. Keep at it, dude.

And meanwhile he's PMing everyone to check out this noob's post.
