Yeah, I do realize that. I wish there was another counter for unique views. But I've viewed this thread maybe 15-20 times and I doubt if anyone else has been here more than once or twice, so it's still indicative of a very low vote to view ratio. From what I've seen this is typical in many forums (fora if you wish).

It would be interesting to get feedback/insight from non-voters on why that is. A common answer would probably be: "I scan a post long enough to see if I'm interested. If not, I leave immediately." A very small percentage of forum users provide "90%" of the content and participation.

This is not really a big surprise to anyone. It's a natural consequence of short attention span that comes with so many varied interests and distractions. It's just that I suddenly got the urge to post some thoughts on it...
