I just noticed that the answer count on user profiles is sometimes different from the number of answers in their "all answers" lists. For example, my profile in RMT says I have 41 answers. When I click "all answers", I get a 3-page list. The first page has 19 answers, the second has 18 answers, and the third has 0 answers. 19 + 18 + 0 != 30. ("!=" means "not equal") So why are the answer counts inconsistent with each other?

Are hidden answers counted?
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that hidden answers are counted.
EDIT: Nevermind, I guess they aren't.

If you answered a question which the asker subsequently took down, then it will still contribute to your total answers despite the thread being invisible in activity lists.

Anyone else feel that this should be changed to not include those answers?
Yeah, probably. I’m not too bothered by it personally, but it makes sense that way.
