Unreliable Statistics

While I would imagine that the statistics for the Wikimedia wikis are close to accurate, some of the others could be labelled as 'misleading'. The TV IV, which as of this writing claims to have a conservative count of 43517 articles, clearly has nowhere near that many. Upon further investigation, the 'random page' link on their site leads to pages devoid of content more than 50% of the time. Let me be clear in saying that I am not centering out TV IV with mal-intent, but it does seem to be the worst offender...

This list should probably be taken with a grain of salt until such time that a better algorithm can be devised for automatically calculating the conservative article count.
