I'm interested both in improving our user stats

Dan, how do we know that those 17 percent were predominantly humans?
We don't know for certain that they're human. That said, why would a
spambot try to use the Wikipedia app? You're only creating extra hurdles
for yourself by doing so. I've seen no evidence so far that anyone except
humans use the Wikipedia app. Well, and Googlebot, but it reports itself to
us using a special user agent and also only reads articles. :-)
