The discrepancies in those numbers are quite consistent, over time. For example, there always seem to be about 10 times the "viewers" in the semi-automatic handgun forum as in Tactics and Training; how curious that bots find semi-automatic pistols so very interesting.
One wonders why that would be so, if it's not somehow correlated with the interests of the "do we not bleed?" crowd...
