so my sub number in the creator studio jumped back up again from 75k to 77k (it was originally on 78) but the about page still says 75,
now i really have no idea what is going on. why would it get cleared down, then brought back up again? (anyone else check to see the same thing?)

they have said our sub counts will always be correct in analytics, but where do you even find your sub count in analytics?

My account is like 4 months old, and I lost 111 subs in the subscriber purge. Afterwards, a handful of my regular viewers and active commenters told me that they got unsubbed, but that they resubbed. However, my subscriber count didn't change to reflect the regained subscribers...
YouTube has posted that it was a bug "that prevented changes in subscriber counts from being accurately displayed publicly on creators’ channels." I don't know how that translates to deleting my active subs but.... ok I guess.

I agree that it was startling at first, but if they really are inactive and aren't driving your traffic anyway than I can make peace with that!

Makes sense to remove the inactive ones. If you're subscribers aren't active then they won't be watching any of your videos, so no need for them to really be there I guess. Now I'm not sure how they determine inactivity really, so that's still a mystery.
