I was just refreshing a Stack Overflow post, and the view count increased on every refresh.

Just out of curiosity, can we stop incrementing the view count on page refresh?

Are you sure this wasn't a coincidence? Views are tracked by IP (afaik), and not by simple pageviews. –  slhck Oct 4 '11 at 10:57

This would be coincidence, you alone cannot increase the view count by refreshing...we intentionally prevent this from a single user (or IP), e.g. your refresh won't be counted as another page view for quite a while.
