It appears as though this site (AlliedMods) needs to update the ServerQuery function that is being used to query how many servers are using a particular plugin (by checking for the specified ConVar). As you are probably aware, Valve has updated the query so many servers now send a challenge before responding. As a result, AlliedMods is incorrectly reporting the number of servers as much lower than actual. I'm not sure which games are now using the new query method, but I know L4D2 is one of them starting with release 2.2.1.3 (discussion thread here).

Update: In particular, see these posts...

Thank you Asherkin! It appears you may already have a fix in place, or at least ready for the next release. I'll check the numbers again after the next refresh.

Checked this morning and the query seems to be working fine again. Thank you for resolving this so quickly.
