I have found that if you refresh a post, it increases the viewcount by 1. Surely, this shouldn't happen. I have found many websites that have this same problem and others that don't have the problem. It makes it possible to artificially increase the popularity of a post. I don't know if it does the same thing if you refresh a post that isn't your own but it is something that should probably be looked into...

Yes, I've noticed this too, long ago.
But I never look at the views for any posts, so I don't really care.
Unless it skews the search results.

Yes, all posts in a topic get incremented.
