Question about press release (900k droplets, 150k ips)

Hi guys, Today I’ve received the “Thanks for you support in 2013” letter there you said you reached 900k droplets and 150k IPs. I am just curious how that is possible. Is not each droplet connected to its own IP address?

Perhaps when someone destroys a droplet, they do not subtract it from the 900k (running) total. Yet, if a person created a new droplet right away, they’d get the same IP address.
