Is odesk suppressing resumes

I have noticed that the jobs I have posted recently are not getting
as many applications as they used too.
in the past I could post an hourly job and within 2 hours I would have 200 applications and often it would be 400+. Now I am getting 30-40 applications for hourly jobs and the same fraction for fixed price jobs.
Now I know their are 2 possible reasons.
The contractors have all of a sudden become really smart, they have formed a union
and they all agree not too submit resumes to every single job in order to raise the rates.
Odesk has come too the understanding that the fewer people that apply for the job
the more a person will make, and the more the contractor makes, the more odesk makes.
We will call this the supply and demand theory of the game.
