So, I'm looking at my badges, and my first thought is, "I have more than 59!"

enter image description here

Looking at the Nice Answer, that's 67 right there :) Is this just a CSS issue, or is there an actual calculation error going on?

You see, you have 59 distinct badges, even though a few of them have been awarded multiple times.

Even Jon Skeet's page has "only" 587 badges, even though he has more than 2k(!) Enlightened badges.

So, it's by design.

    Should it not say then "59 Distinct Badges"?
