Chinese IPs viewing user profiles

Something is happening on a forum I moderate that is puzzling me. At various times we are getting multiple and repetitive connections from IP numbers in two blocks belonging to the same Chinese ISP.

The actions are the same. They look at user profiles, many of which are old and often inactive. They come, they look and then they go. Duration of the activity is around 30 to 60 minutes, up to 6 or 8 connections at a time. Its nothing like crawler bots or an attempt at a DoS.

If any one has any ideas I'd appreciate it.
