I doubt that automatic clicks are at fault in my case. My logs show that the
hits are coming from thousands of unique individuals, and to my knowledge
you can't do this with a script (unless you're a spammer using zombie
machines or something). Also, visitor click paths are consistent with real
human behavior.

I certainly welcome any corrections to these thoughts, however!
