Well look at this topics VIEWS.. cant be true right ?

I discovered a simple bug with that. The forum software counts every refresh that is done at the selected topic.
I wrote a quick tool that allows me to refresh the topic rapidly..

Please fix this bug.

Do NOT use tools which automatically refresh pages on our site. We have in the past permanently IP banned users for doing so. It can slow the server down for everybody.

It would be kind of cool to have a forum prison instead of IP ban. Then these prisoners would only be allowed to talk with each other and with the spam bots that are trapped in there Maybe with some rep they could bail out.
This was more related to what Ashley said and I'm not serious. nemo2013-07-08 06:48:00

It's not so much a bug as it is a possible issue. It's simply the absence of software checking to make sure the user hasn't visited the same thread within the last X minutes.

This has also been mentioned before, along with the fact that some users - including me - have noticed double view counts, which hasd been going on for a couple years now.
