Bots or otherwise…
Mercy, that’s quite a spike. Easily most page views for a single day in the 8 or so years I’ve been running this blog.
Most were on the home page, but a good chunk are on an archive page that’s pretty ordinary; mostly twitter updates, save for a few thousand word rant about my identify theft nightmare.
UPDATE 2012-11-20: please see this post for where this traffic is coming from.
