Surprised me. Wilders only at #9. I wouldn't have expected him at #1, but at least somewhere around #5.

I would have put Victor Orban at #1 for the simple reason that he actually rules a country and Silvio Berlusconi at #2 since there's the risk it will be re-elected soon (I keep the finger crossed ). Don't know about others, but extremist parties that get something like 5% of votes aren't usually a big treat.

They are no treat indeed

An unexpected gift, event etc., which provides great pleasure.

100 million posts on SSC! On the first page it says just 62 million, but I guess 38 million have been deleted since 2002 (although that's an awful lot).

Very unlikely, unless entire subforums had been closed and deleted throghout the years. Usually the rate of posts deleted for ordinary moderation reasons is low, maybe 1%, not 38%.

This post is #100,006,564. I don't know, but I remember a few years ago they deleted whole threads and I lost some 500 posts or so.

UKIP is doing dangerously well in the polls though, I think a lot of the protest vote that went to the Liberal Democrats now going to UKIP. A very dangerous protest vote

But even if they win, he doesn't seem like a dangerous man to me, more like an amusing clown.

I think posts at skybars don't count. Which means 38% off topic posts (likely more due to offtopic posting elsewhere, like in this thread).

You're right, that's the correct explanation. So cheers to 100 million posts on SSC.
