Comment count bug July 17, 2002 12:07 PM   Subscribe

This is a minor bug, but if you go into the July Archives page, the Waking Life thread says it has 69 comments. If you click into the thread, the parenthetical reports 68 comments.

possibly one of those comments was deleted? if that were true, one of those two bits of information isn't accounting for comments with a deleted flag.

Yes, I saw the comment before it was deleted. It was a response to Wolfdaddy's post and had some NSFW language. The parenthetical seems to be the correct one (one could always count too, nah)

Whose comment was it?

I deleted something I thought was too stupid even for this site, and I can't remember who said it or what it was exactly.

I'll fix the comment count thing on the archives page, good catch.

Oh jeeze -- don't you go all "MeFi = Fark" on us, Matt.
