I am curious if anyone has come up with what makes a question popular.
The question that triggered this curiosity is How to prevent pictures from being downloaded by right-clicking on them or Inspecting the web page? - 4k views in 2 days, 8 answers and my answer has 25 up votes.
To me it doesn't seem like a special question, yet it seems to have touched something in a lot of readers. Is it because compared to many questions a lot of readers might know something about this? Is it because it is something that affects many people? Could it be just a bit of an answering frenzy, where because it is modified so often, the question is bumped so it is read more, so it is modified which bumps it, etc etc
