stackexchange.com currently lists

1.1 million users 5.3 million questions 1.8 million answers

I thought this have been much more earlier, and I checked it through http://web.archive.org/web/20121209091909/http://stackexchange.com/:

2.6 million users 5 million questions 9.6 million answers

What happened to all the users and answers?

The 1.8m answers is almost definitely wrong. It looks to be a bad query... (or stats being added to a table going slightly wrong) –  ben is uǝq backwards Jan 22 '13 at 8:57

@Bart thanks for the link, meanwhile both statistics show reasonable numbers again. If you like, phrase a quick answer (temporary glitch, no need to report immediately etc.) according to your comments in the other answer, and I will happily accept it. –  Andreas Jan 22 '13 at 9:44
