alt text How can a question be answered without being viewed? Makes no sense to me. See screenshot.

Views are buffered and written to disk periodicially so they can be batched up.

Therefore you can see zero views for a while until the # of buffered views reaches the threshold and are all spooled out to the database.

This is less of an issue on high volume sites where views are being incremented a lot more rapidly.
