Is there apurpose to having the numbers of views listed, it's 6:40pm, at 6:19pm a post i had read had 1 view and 21 minutes later it had 183 times. No other post had more then 4 or 5 views, does the # of views keep the post higher or does this viewing do something to your stats, if any?

i was looking at the wrong thing, i should have looked at the date the thread started, not the last post :o

Josh explained it perfectly.

The number of views simply gives everyone an idea as to how many people are taking a peek at the post. This is a built-in feature to just about every flavor of bulletin board software out there these days.
