Forum Traffic

Out of curiosity, how much of the traffic on this site (currently) is from non-human sources (e.g., bots)? Say, for example, a thread has 100 views, what percentage of that is from actual human users who are reading the thread?

Unfortunately I don't have the free time to pull that data, but a few months ago I prevented all bots from accessing the site except for Google.  Last I checked, < 5% was bot traffic.
