First off, I am aware that the viewcount has probably been possible to game in other ways before which should have been in most people's minds, especially those going off theviewcount to reward some authors extra. Hence why I put the "warning" in the title to not have users be tricked into rewarding a post more because the amount of views might seem really high, feeling the post deserves it more because of it.
Having said that it wasn't as easy to game it as to just press refresh multiple times in the past so something must have occurred in the meantime. @steeminator3000 made me aware of this bug.
This was tested with Google Chrome on a post and was adding views on each refresh. Please feel free to test it with other browsers if its the same.
For the time being please refrain from voting posts up higher because it has a lot of views and attention since it very well might be fake by users that have realized of this bugs existence.
