On the contrary, it's already been done everywhere else on the site. The Monastery Gates shows the number of replies along with each message, as does each individual section. Recursive replies wouldn't need to be counted, only top level. I only suggest adding that functionality to the Newest Nodes page.

    OK. i think it's basically useless to only count top-level replies, since the purpose of showing the count is presumably to be able to compare it with an earlier value and thus notice additions to a thread easier without having to correlate and count the appropriate comments in the Notes/Replies.

    p.s. i need more -- votes on stupid drivel like this.
