Attack Of The Web Crawlers

Over the last several days the traffic to my blog has ballooned, according to one set of metrics, but given that all my recent posts are getting exactly the same number of hits, at improbably regular intervals, and the referring sites are minimal, I suspect a bot is to blame. It's very annoying. It would be one thing if people--actual flesh and blood human beings!--were reading, but on the blog itself I've only gotten spam comments – some obscene--and this sudden superfluity of alleged pageviews. And I haven't said anything particularly controversial of late.
