Emails to @qq.com Clicking Links Automatically

Try this- create a smart list to show leads that click at least 5 links in an email (that obviously has more than 5 links). Once you send your email out, you'll notice that smart list will quickly accumulate your leads at qq.com as well as @mailinator leads. 

Apparently their systems auto open AND click links (maybe they're caching the url?). Ultimately, this makes our click/open spike unnaturally right after we send emails and then come back down after a while has passed. I'd like to hear how others are dealing with this.

- Don't email these accounts (qq.com ones are probably real people in China)
- Just know that your stats are not accurate?
- Make an adjustment to your stats?

Example of auto clicking activity. These links are far down in my email yet have exactly the same performance immediately after delivery.
