That is not the results we are seeing.  There are a LARGE amount of people that check for updates once or twice a day, yes.  However, we have hundreds of thousands of people that check for updates hundreds of times a day.  We haven't started concentrating on these people yet (our biggest offender is one IP that checks 100,000+ times a day), but clearly that's excessive.  We publish approx 5-6 times a day.  So, let's say you check 50 times a day....  Clearly, that's enough.
