Does anyone get much traffic from Cuil?

I'm just wondering how much traffic this search engine produces for other people. I made a site recently and Twiceler has been hitting me constantly for months. I never get any traffic from it though so I'm thinking it's just a waste of my bandwidth. Is it worth waiting and trying to optimise the site or does Cuil not produce much traffic anyway?

I recently began accepting twiceler because Cuill is used, with several other SEs, by the meta engine that I now use instead of google, and which I recommend to my customers.

Of the two sites I keep tabs on, one of them our most widely accessed site, I have yet to see a single hit from Cuill itself.

The only traffic that Cuil ever sent me was my own. I was checking my sites in Cuil. It's been 403ed for the last few weeks and I made sure that it got robots.txt before banning it. Still hammers away despite getting 403s. I don't have the highest respect for the technological abilities of the people in Cuil. In Irish, the name means a fly or a bug. And in that it is living up to its name.
