Cheating Feedburner Counts

Why do people cheat others using their feedburner counts? Here is a blog cheating people of their feedburner counts.

CHeck the following image (caching directly from their server)

First when I saw the image, I thought maybe Feedburner writes the count as such for a blog having a lot of readers. It does but checking other stats of that blog like alexa count…I found it impossible to digest feedburner showing such a count for a blog whose featured post is several months old.

BTW it has disabled showing real feedcount as this url which should show actual feed count just shows a blank image of 1×1 pixel.

Pls comment here with any more such blogs faking their counts so that we can check the authenticity.
