Only if message delivery was a blocking, serial process - it isn't.

Even if it took a message 15 minutes, to get from input to output,
there's nothing that says you can't be submitting a constant stream of
messages up to the bandwidth of the input pipe - it would take 15
minutes for your stream to get to the output (high latency!), but once
it got there it could be spitting out messages at the same rate as the
input.

It would however mean that if the delay holds true, then you'd be able
to get about 50 back/forth exchanges on any thread/topic a day - which
is certainly more than most threads get on this particular list.
