    Was wondering whether the figures for the number of views of threads include bots.

    Yes, they do.

    If you don't want this; I've got a free add-on which blocks guests XenForo thinks are bots from increasing any thread view counters.

    Block logging bot views

    Thanks, both. If Xenforo was not counting bot visits then I would have not counted them on our editorial, either. But it seems the whole world is not discounting bots, so I'm not about to buck the trend and cut our view counts.
