Default Who is this nobody with the most profile visits?

So after finally seeing the Top 10 stats again in forever, I was fiddling with the different kinds and noted a weird unrecognizeable name has the most profile views... click on them and it's... someone with no posts, no threads, no shred of an identity... yet, over 55K views??

Who is this nobody?

Yeah, but I'd rather have nothing for a change. How do you do it?
Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.

It's probably a bot.

How does a bot even generate that many views though?

He/it stalks profiles and posts ads about their profession daily. We got one that had a random ass profession.

But it's not 55K views on others.. it's the 55K views on their profile

Now that is bothersome. Perhaps too vain? XD

It's definitely a bot. The website gives it away. No idea how it got that many profile views though.

How do you even view top 10 profile visits?

Yeah it'll be a bot thing, probably just auto-reloading a load of pages for whatever reason.

A few weeks ago we had what seemed like a DDOS or bot going to just our profile pages; I'm not sure if that one just tried to put load on our server or inflate the profile view stats. I still have the logs, I could probably extract which member pages were accessed, but what I saw back then was pretty random.

Anyway, that did fuck up the profile view stats. I could generate a list of the most accessed member pages during that period and maybe reset the stats for those users if they're not relevant?

I dunno he seemed really interesting. I kept refreshing hoping he'd post.

Aha, okay, so between Yop and Ite, makes sense.
