19 to 6 isn't a close vote.
So, even though I was one of the six, I have added post count back to the postbit.

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
Yes, it should be visible imho.
I think displaying the post count is worthless. The thanks bit is a better way to judge if you should do business with a member, mostly for the fact that at other boards I've seen many scammers with hundreds if not thousands of posts.
Having a huge post count should not be why you do business with someone.
I'd rather do business with someone with 10 posts and 30 thanks than 3000 posts and 10 thanks.
Just my opinion, but then again, I've never been impressed or concerned by post counts and think they should be removed.
