Browsing through the entries in the Newsbot feed since December 1st, 2013, it looks as though most news stories get 10-30 views (can't be bothered to do actual number-crunching statistics to find the average no. of views, so this is just a very rough estimate, i.e. number that has been pulled out of the monkey's ass). Stories that have received comments gain more attention. There are a couple statistical outliers, like this Happy Holidays from AEG that garnered 312 views, even though nobody commented on it.
Of course, some (all?) of those views may have come from other bots, trawling the net.
I recently cut back on some of the more active feeds it was reporting as I felt it was starting to swamp the forums because you lot are so quiet these days
Looks like very few people have comments for any groups other than the RPGMP3 Pros these days, so when there's a lengthy hiatus in releases from Hal & Co., the forum drops deathly silent.
