I am sometimes surprised at certain questions that have received huge numbers of views. For example, I just stumbled across this question. I mean it no disrespect - it's a perfectly nice question - but it only has three votes and is quite esoteric and closed as homework-like. I can't imagine that people often search for keywords that lead to this question, or click on it based on its title. Nevertheless, it has almost 17,000 views, which almost puts it within the highest percentile of the most widely-viewed questions on the entire community.
Could this be the result of bots or a bug in the analytics? Or is there something about questions like this that I'm missing which makes them immensely popular? (Again, I mean no disrespect to the OP and I don't mean to be snarky - I'm genuinely curious.)
