Bots viewing threads in GM?

yesterday i started a very modest thread about ITF player Louisa Chirico to discuss her fall in the rankings over the last couple of years... and the thread received 2,000 views in under an hour. This is the type of thread that would normally get a couple hundred clicks in a full 24 hour cycle... Either the view count went haywire or there are some kind of bots involved. Just wanted to let you guys know about that.

Or alternatively she is just a lot more popular than would be reasonably expected

no, because if that was really the case, the 2000 views per hour view rate would have lasted longer and/or been more uniform over the course of the day. I guess it's possible that somebody with a lot of Twitter followers tweeted out the thread and then un-tweeted it an hour later.

I was kind of joking TBH
Someone on the TF admin side might have another explanation though.

Hey there,

It could be lurkers as well, not just registered users.
So there could be a lot of non-registered users viewing the thread.
