Typically, very few of those are actually confirmable.

The site shows a whole bunch of crazy spam transactions (e.g. tens of kilobytes, 1e-8 outputs only, no fees) which will never actually be confirmed, won't even be relayed, wouldn't be constructed by any unmodified software, and are probably a lame wristed DOS attack attempt. ... so the sheer count just isn't interesting.

Ah. Thanks for that info. Not seen anything like that number before.

I currently have 4 transactions incoming that haven't been confirmed yet... 3 from April 6th in the afternoon and one from April 7th in the morning. Nothing big... just some faucet transactions. Still seems strange that they are taking so long to confirm.

I have some as well.

eg. this one  cb50e850d3ce6569c02675a4c5dcb8bc727f95ade1bb84a7e9e19467f6be2348

From bitcoin faucet to a list of people, totalling 2.9845 BTC. Yet it just sits there unconfirmed for days. Is there any way to force such a transaction to go through ?

Other transactions, from sites that pass out coins do get confirmed and end up with hundreds of confirmations. Wouldn't it make more sense to even it out, not confirm transactions that have been confirmed 500 times already, I mean whats the added value of the 501th one, and do to some trouble ones that are in limbo instead ?
