You know, for the high thread viewcounts I see, I wonder how much of it is related to bots in this forum?

PPM is visited by thousands of bots every single day. Many of them try to register/post, few are successful and the vast majority of their posts gets deleted. There are also many attempts, every hour, to hack the site and the forums... almost 99% of the time by bots.

Is that normal for each forum on the web or does someone have a vandetta/grudge against you/moderators/etc.?

RA2DIY confirms hundreds of advertisement bots each day until we changed the register questions to something like "what is the third word in Ares manual AttachEffect.PenetratesIronCurtain= explanation?"

It is normal for a web site/forum.
