I'm not sure what's going on but I checked my Geekstuff page today and saw I was on someone's geekbuddy list. Growing suspicious I clicked the url to display whose list I was on. Turns out I am on some guy's list named Ben Lott. What's unusual about this? Well, according to his profile he only registered six days ago and now has 430 geek buddies. I'm stumped as to why anyone would need that many geek buddies let alone how they got so many in such a short time. Anyone know what's up?

Edit: Forgot to mention that I have no clue who this guy is.

He has added 430 users to his buddy list - most likely for GeekBuddy analysis.

Yes, this was done to compile the top ten list of games of The Dice Tower guild members. Here is the thread: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/212323

430 geek buddys? That's not much. There's a user 1000rpm data mining that has 1146 geek buddys.

But this one has stated in his profile:
"This is an additional user profile that I have set up purely to mine data - using the geekbuddy facility for example."

I've just looked and I'm not on his list!

Now I feel really, really, REALLY depressed.

Let's go find a pigeon to abuse.

Just because I think it need clarification. He has "added" 430 people to his geek buddy list. Only 1 other person added him to the their list. It's easy to run down a list of 430 people and add them.
