I doubt that this has anything to do with the IAEA flood that hit last year (and continues to strike every time I mention “sensitive topics”… I got another bunch right after the Bull Durham story). It may be something more along the lines of a misbehaving ‘bot, like in the AsciiRock episode. But I’m getting tired of seeing a bazillion hits from the University of Minnesota College of Biological Sciences, supposedly referred via Slashdot. I thought it was just me, until GeekGrrl pointed it out on her site, which led to a flood of others seeing the same thing.
Whatever it is, it’s got my permission to stop anytime now.
