I would refrain from doing comments like this, altough I am not a photographer, and this for a variety of reasons:
1. View count is exceptionally high. Just compare it to popular photos of last time. For example, photos of the aircraft crashed into WTC doesn't get as nearly these high counts
2. Fraud and abuse. If somebody has tricked the view count system of a.net which takes care to distinct one view from another, then it is absolutely inacceptable thing. Imagine a small script running somewhere on the net screwing up the views count by tricking the a.net counter, so the counter thinks, every time the script calls for the photo, this is a new view. Well, you know how much traffic and bandwidth costs? I used to work as sysadmin for an ISP and I know. And, might it be not so crucial for ONE small fraud script(if there is some), 1000 are a pain in the butt and net abuse at its worst.
