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.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov

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.
