    Why are postings viewed so quickly?

    I've noticed that whenever I make a posting, the view could is immediately 3.

    Is every posting automatically read by some software, say, so that it can be archived?
    Seems that something automatic must be going on.

    It is more likely to be that people are hanging on your every word! <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    The server counts your own views in the total, which could explain part of it.

    Jefferson is right-on about that aspect. If you make a post and go back to the board to ensure that it's OK, that's one. If you use a tabbed browser, sometime try opening a second tab with Who's Online and you'll almost invariably see that someone IS "hanging on your every word" as John put it.

    I don't usually go back to a posting explicitly, but I am automatically taken back after I post.

    I guess if I Edit a typo that also adds to the count.

    Yes, every edit will open it again and the count will go up.
