    Ok. I also creeped into your profile. And, I have over 100 posts. :D
    You need sleep bro. Take some rest. Lack of sleep sometimes leads to paranoia.

    Ahh, nice observation! I have to think that it's a numbers thing- the number of lurkers far outweigh the number of regular posters so it's only natural that they should be noobs or people with low post count. If they were all profiles with posts it would even be more strange! Also, 10 visits isn't really a significant sample size-- it may just be variance ;)

    They want to go fishing with daddy?

    I visited your profile and it seems you are popular for some reason.
    "This page has had 1,729 visits"
    I have 55 views or so. Slightly more active in a year than you have been in 3 yet you get all the attention. lolz

    Actually, you helped me solve the mystery.
    The reason you got views is because you made threads. I made one or two but not high profile.

    OP made a thread where he wonders if he is paranoid, should be solved by this thread.
    He made another one where he returned a wallet with content. Naturally people will want to know more about such a person. That thread alone got over 1K views.

    OP knows how to pick his thread titles too. Kudo's on that. :)

    I think someone knows the trick to get profile visits.

    post thread titles like this.

    What creeps me out is your newbies rank since 2010.

    Congrats for unraveling this great mystery. :D
    On a serious note, although I am not an expert in such things, but I believe quality of thread, it's title and concept largely contribute to its views. So, if you start quality threads, which are appealing to masses of BHW, then your views count will escalate quickly.

    I am really tempted to look at your profile now, but I do not want you to think I am after bumming you or something, so I will give it a miss.

    Thank you for your great advise. :)
    I don't post threads for views tho. All the ones I did create served their purpose nicely. lolz!
