WTF is it with this. I don't post sh*t in months and I see people going to my profile.

Yeah, I don't get it either, I have a whopping 270 posts at this time and have 790 visits to my profile??? What's with that? Computer/software issues?

Folks on tablets and phones trying to scroll, will hit usernames and open the profiles.

Of the last 1000 times I visited a profile, exactly 0 of them were intentional.

Happens a lot - small text and fat fingers do not work well at times.

I use that button all the time and have exactly the same problem. No big surprise.

Let's also remember that IB is paid by the click so they're not going to mind and surely not going to move those links further apart.

I assume everyone visiting my profile either wants to be my friend, or punch me in the head.

I look when they have posted something for sale and there is no location on their Avatar or say where they live...But I looked at yours to see where you were bitching from.
