Evening all (unless you're Sterockicy, in which case I have no idea what time it is :p). Just a quick note to say I won't be around much this weekend, as tomorrow I'm off skiing (for the first time ever), and then on Sunday I am first watching Plymouth-Watford down at the bar, and then hopefully watching 300 in the afternoon. No B/P points for me :(
Speaking of which I need 9 more points to get my 75 per day for this week. The last couple of days have REALLY picked up after the horrors of Tuesday and Wednesday. It isn't exactly the pace I am used to, but getting on the list is good enough for me this week given how busy I've been :)

It is isnt it. I doubt it was mass voting though because it just got blammed. I have never seen anything like that happen before. Truly amazing!It happened before and numbers even get higher than that, it's just that during UJ even if the same person refreshes the page, it counts as a new view, so this is basically mass viewing.
You see it a lot with hentai movies, somewhat unsurprisingly it must be said. I've never seen anything get as high as 17,000 views though. As has been said it is caused by a person, or people, constantly refreshing a page to boost the view count. I've also heard rumor of a bug that causes the page to refresh very quickly, although I don't know how true that is.
It does serve some very limited purpose for flash submitters though. When looking through UJ flash and you see a movie with 400 views, you automatically assume that it is about to pass, and is therefore good. Some people may just pass it straight away, hoping to catch it before it passes, but more likely a viewer will watch the flash with a different mind set. Thinking it is going to pass, the viewer will look for positives and find a reason to pass it, rather than looking for negatives as they might normally.
It doesn't make a lot of difference, but it can give it a little push towards safety. With too many views though it becomes obvious that it has been 'mass viewed' and the effect is lost.
