Unaligned comment counts in "My Answers"

Hi all,

in your answer the number of comments is not aligned with the real number of comments

As you can see, i answered yesterday to a question and i got 1 vote and "no comments yet".

Sadly, it's not true, since Derek indeed commented my reply

    • You are right: i'm a troublemaker and bugbuilder!
      You found me out, Christopher!

      But think this way: how elsewhere could SAP employ so many ui and Q&A experts if i do not create any problem?
      It' s all work! :)

    Perhaps an easy test to confirm my suspicion that only a comment on the original post would register in the view?

    Could this be an answer, converted to comment?

    Or, another version - comments getting deleted?

    Edit:
    From what I can see, if I delete my own comments, they still count as comments to the answer in my profile (not surprising, this is like setting of a deletion flag). Converting comment to answer did not decrease the comment count in my case (I waited for some time).

    In both cases I get incorrect values, but they are like 'more comments counted', which is not what Simone reports.
    Could this discrepancy be related to moderation activities - I have no idea.

    And can we get rid of the horrible comments/answers distinction already?

    This does not look like a technical limitation to me (there is kbentry at least), but it will require major rework of the functionalities, which depend on comments/answers distinction.
