I'm not sure what's happening, but I think my threads are bugged:

This thread has over a hundred thousand views, and 19 Guests, which doesn't seem possible.

Similarly, this one has forty thousand views!

I'm not sure what's going on, but it seems to be some kind of error.

Is there anything I can do to fix it?


Request threads are visible to visitors. It is entirely possible to rake up high view counts.
The more you shine, the more shadows you cast. This is part of living life and living it well. Be disciplined and accepting of this. Be humble when faced with hate, but build the courage to fight it. Respect yourself and understand that the light shining through you is not entirely your own.~Tansy Undercrypt

Also, bots, considering the amount of images/links.  This is how search engines and sites like TinEye collect their 'Where can I find this' data.

It's partly bots, partly that view count is registered per-session, so any visits to the thread outside a half hour or so will increment it also.
