Perhaps only one digit displayed in the first??

I'm sort of curious how it got 20 delete votes without getting deleted. – Gabe Mar 27 '11 at 2:01
    
@Gabe It's harder to delete popular questions; that post will require 31 votes – Michael Mrozek Mar 27 '11 at 2:06
    
@Michael: It looks like it has almost 580 votes. Hopefully it will be migrated to someplace like Codegolf.SE before it gets the 30 votes needed to delete. – Gabe Mar 27 '11 at 2:20
    
@Gabe only if a diamond does it. You could flag and suggest. – Rosinante Mar 27 '11 at 2:55
    
@Rosinante They might make an exception for something close to deletion, but it's rare to migrate to betas, and it's rare to migrate old posts – Michael Mrozek Mar 27 '11 at 3:04
    
Yeah, I said "hopefully it will be" because I figured that we'd have to wait for CG.SE to get out of beta (if ever), then hope that it's considered on-topic, then hope that they're willing to migrate a post that old. – Gabe Mar 27 '11 at 3:09
    
@Michael: Does a post with 30 delete votes show all 30 voters? stackoverflow.com/questions/53264/… shows only 3 delete voters but requires 14 undelete votes apparently. – Gabe Mar 27 '11 at 3:11
    
@Gabe Yes. The change to require more votes for popular questions was in May 2010; that post was deleted Feb 2010 – Michael Mrozek Mar 27 '11 at 5:30
up vote 4 down vote accepted

The default filter on the delete list is 2 days:

Screenshot of the filters

So the post has 20 delete votes total, but only 2 in the last two days. It actually only has 2 in the last 30 days, so widening the filter that far won't help, but the counts of other posts can change (for example, For statement in C has 18 delete votes, all in the last month but only 1 recently, so it says "1" on the 2d/7d/14d views, but 18 on the 30d -- 17 were between 15 and 30 days ago)

Seems you are right, but the number is misleading. I understand it may be the right one for the "Recent votes" column, but of course NOT for the "Most Votes" one. – Dr. belisarius Mar 27 '11 at 2:10
    
So there is no way from the 10K tools to get a real ranking of the questions with most delete votes ... – Dr. belisarius Mar 27 '11 at 2:17
