I posted the wrong number of views for the thread started June 1. I just went back and edited it. It should be 1,598, not 5,840 (the figure on the page one level above). My carelessness. Sorry.
But this thread has had a lot of views in short time, as already mentioned.
A couple of years ago the view counter was broken, and new threads showed the same numbers or views as replies for several months, until it was fixed.
