    I really hate having to click on a post I’ve already read to see if there are comments, and I find I’m less inclined to come to the site these days. You said when the redesign first came online that the recent comments feature might come back. Any idea when if and when this is the case? Could we at least get a comment count on the front page?

    Heartly seconded. The evidence for this is the decreased discussion. I know the staff isn’t focused on web design but on reporting but the redesign seems to have completely missed why/how a lot of us used the site.
