Whenever I click on a badge, the new page header says X number of users earned that badge, but X is not the number of users, rather it's the total number of times that certain badge was given. Isn't it wrong?

For instance, popular question page shows {as of now} 13955 users earned this badge when 13955 users are not being displayed.

The page isn't designed to show every single person who ever earned it. It's showing who it was RECENTLY awarded to, and yes it can and does show the same user multiple times if they are awarded multiples of the same badge in the same time frames.
