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?

Don't know.  Ask Robert.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

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.
