My apologies if this is a stupid question or if it has been answered before, but how come there are so many empty blocks with no transactions?

See for example:

http://blockexplorer.com/block/0000000000000310c02bf8178945c443211b197ea150b57d3f4025a6aecc0e17
http://blockexplorer.com/block/00000000000008600ffc4669c5ae91364eeb142d96694dd6cd4452491cc9e3b8

Obviously there have been transactions during those periods, so I don't understand why the blocks are empty?

Thanks!
Roberto

Looks like there is some miner (mining pool) that doesn't include any transactions at all.
http://blockchain.info/blocks/88.6.216.9


That discusses why we allow blocks with no transactions. I think that he is asking why there were no transactions in those blocks when transactions were actually performed during that time.
