COMMENTS

Numbers with a digit 7 (A011537) have asymptotic density 1, i.e., here almost all terms are removed from the harmonic series, which makes convergence less surprising. See A082839 (the analog for digit 0) for more information about such so-called Kempner series. - M. F. Hasler, Jan 13 2020
