I have earned few months ago the Copy editor badge by editing 500+ posts in the review queue.

A week ago looking at my stats I see this (both pics were taken 1 minute ago):

Why does it says that I need 9 more edits to the Copy Editor badge (can be awarded only once) while I already have it. It's not a cache problem, because when I edit a post, that count is incremented correctly.

Is it a bug?

Some posts you edited have since been deleted. Deleted posts do not count towards the badge, but you earned the badge before the posts you edited were removed.

Once earned, regular badges are forever (tag badges are taken away when you no longer meet the requirements).
