[This is sort of a v2.0 request as well!]
For the front page, could you guys add a "X comments" link, where X is the number of replies (NOT number of posts) to the news post? It would feel a little bit more natural (and yes, blog-like), plus it would encourage some interaction to the news post!
Optionally, you guys could also change "X comments" to "Leave a comment" (a la Wordpress style) if there are no replies. Totally optional though!
That's it - let me know what you think!
