My stats show that Russians have been reading a lot of my pages in the past few days--and the browser claims to be Internet Explorer. I gather other people have seen a big spike in Russian readership. Maybe there's a search spider that pretends to be IE, and somebody is trying to create a new Google (Lipkiy-gle?).
Or maybe one of their teams of trolls is casting about to find places that need to hear the Party line, or looking for stuff to quote. I've had my material used without acknowledgment before, though not from this site.
