Issue #112 invalid

Possibly Broken Download Counter?

created an issue

The package at https://pypi.python.org/pypi/rui is one I just uploaded two days ago and is already at 1830 downloads. Unless there is a script somewhere constantly downloading this package, I don't see how it could get this high? Is there something possibly wrong with the download counter?

    Yeah. I just uploaded another project (django-backtalk), and it shot up to 50 downloads super quick. Its almost like someone or a bot is auto-downloading them. Idunno. lol
