Regular smaller quakes are a good thing. Large quakes often occur due to a large build up of pressure. Regular quakes like this indicate that the pressures are being released, thus no build up, and likely no larger Earthquake in the very near future.

EDIT: I won't feed this post. OSIRIS, if you know the answer why ask the question? Perhaps provide your own views as to wether you believe these are "fore-shocks" or not before you cut down others responses to your question.

I'm aware of that.. but a swarm like that can also be a set of for-shocks.

Today there was a 5.2. It was 225 miles south of CA, but notice it was directly on the plate boundry that rides up through the state, kind of like the precursor to the Indonesian quake that ocurred south of Australia. Probably nothing, but who knows?

There was also a 5.7 about 5 miles away from the 5.2 as well.
