The definition of 'demand-circuit' as per the 12.1 cmd. ref.:
Periodic hellos are suppressed and periodic refreshes of LSAs do not flood
the demand circuit. It allows the underlying datalink layer to be closed
when the topology is stable. 
...only periodic hellos and refreshes of LSA's once the call is made. Thus,
you put the 'deny ospf any any' cmd. in to keep hello's from acting as the
'interesting traffic' that can initialize a link. Once non-ospf traffic
brings up the link, demand-circuit kicks in.

Here's the link:
Watch the wrap!!!
