    I just was looking at some of the top thread in DS history when I noticed something really weird

    A thread with 87,000 views but only 18 replies??

    By comparison the thread with the next most views has 85,000 views and 1300 replies

    Now I am not asking for an explanation and to be honest a rational explanation is never as fun and to wondering WTF?

    Even the threads OP was puzzled...

    :dontknow:

    That is really weird because the site was private at the time and wasn't being viewed by bots. If a thread title has certain words in it the bots go crazy, we had a thread at SFsN that had Marilyn Monroe and nude in the title, it had maybe 6 responses and a quarter million page views.

    I remember when this happened. It happened very suddenly. I almost sent a pm to a mod, but I was but a lurker then and didn't want to bother them.

    the majority of my threads generate an inordinate amount of views per post in a matter of hours, i've blamed it on a ghost in the machine or a benevolent mod [​IMG]
