Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I seem to have a consistent incorrect count between the number of comments shown in my inbox 4

and the actual number of comments on this question which is 3

I have not noticed it being correct, the first time I saw it I wanted to report a bug but saw some notes about deleted comments, but this has persisted or at least reoccurred twice now

That question has one deleted comment on it. My theory is that you got the notification when there were still 4 comments, but I'm not sure how the count is fetched for the notification. – Adam Lear Jan 2 '13 at 3:02
The count is still incorrect as the message has noved down the list, so i am guessing it is canned with the full text, but i am fairly certain it was incorrect at the last notification. So this miscount survived a second notification – Harald Scheirich Jan 2 '13 at 17:25
