Well, I've been told by several people that the numbers on the site are a
magnitude or two lower than the ones they're counting up on their screens.
Their comments came some time ago, so I don't know if it's still a
problem, but it did appear to be on ongoing thing at the time (which does
tend to rule out the possibility of skewing due to timing).  I also didn't
investigate too thoroughly and try to double-check their figures, so it's
possible they made an error.
