Based on Does "user profile views" include narcissism?, it looks like visiting our own profile increases the number of 'views' listed there.
Can it NOT please? I'm not interested in how many times I've been there.
I whole-heartedly disagree. If it weren't for my views, my profile would have none at all. And that's just depressing. Are you trying to drive me back to the bottle? Is that it? You know my liver can't handle it. Why don't you just shove the knife into my heart, you monster?
Jeff says this is completed, so I'm going to mark it as answered. I wanted Jeff to post something, but instead I'll accept this one.
I agree with this. One work around is to just use the 'messages' (envelope icon) link, which goes to the recent activity page. This lets you see your recent history without incrementing the view count.
