Registrars visiting domains to reduce tasting?

I have noticed in the past few weeks that every single domain I have registered has been visited multiple times within the 5-day window, quite a few of them even receiving clicks - all from North America.

Does this seem suspicious to anyone else or am I just full of conspiracy theory?

Yep. I think this happens on Sedo also, but just another one of my conspiracy theories.

Could just be people trying to do manual drops.

Registrars, I don't think are that bothered about tasting. I think they are biggest offenders!

haha.
that's such a great idea to kill the tasting practice. if on every new registered domain start appearing those fake clicks that will sure ruin the whole tasting thing.

For sure one domainer could, but I believe it would be counterproductive.

It could even be done by the parking companies themselves, in order to up the number of parked domains...

Or I could really just be that paranoid. Nevertheless, something is going on.
