Supposedly it's the "massive amount of electrical activity" under the cap, along with ozone creation and the family of fairies that live there. I will say that after I started drilling 1/4" holes around the sides of the cap, as per the MSD tech guy's instructions, and wiping the weights down with a very light film of very light oil, that the corrosion dropped down significantly.
