Post count indexing?

Hi, everypeople. I'm "back", at least in a very rough sense.

This is a really minor "bug", and it's entirely possible that it's been brought up before and/or there isn't anything that can be done about it, but I just thought I'd point this out: the post count indexing for threads seems to be off by one in either the thread list or the thread itself, depending on whether you're more comfortable starting from 0 or 1. This has been long standing (apparently), but I never brought it up until now because a) I haven't been here in a long time, and b) it really isn't a big deal.

For instance, a thread will have 16 posts (enough to wrap to a new page with the default pagination settings), but the post count in the thread list will show 15 (likely because it starts indexing from 0).

EDIT: Blah, my bad…I'm forgetting that it counts replies, not total posts. Forget I said anything…
