It is more likely that the same people who have already replied are re-viewing the post each time a new reply is added - plus your own views of your post - so the cound very quickly adds up - but I do understand that knowing technically why the count is often very much higher than the replies doesn't help very much emotionally

I hope you're able to take a step back and not take the view count personally. I'm like you in that I think it's unneccesary and wish there was a way to disable it. Especially on a support forum like this because it can and does engender negative feelings.

How many posts do each of us including myself look over and not reply to?
My best advice is, don't look at the count. As Ardatha stated, it takes many counts to even just reply to a post, atleast 5 then you have the amount of times the actual poster looks.
Be proud of yourself for just posting, that takes enough courage.
