Actually, upon reflection, I kind of agree with this. I very much like that they've provided us with such detailed statistics about our (and others!) voting patterns. But the information is considerably more dense, and thus more difficult to parse for both newbies and experienced users alike. The upvote and downvote symbols next to the total vote count were very user-friendly and quite easy to understand.
I propose that the two designs be combined. The total vote count could still be presented as the most prominent data, using the up-arrow/down-arrow sprites for instant visual recognition, while keeping all of the other useful statistical data that has been added to the right.
I'm not much of a designer, though, so I'm not even going to try and create a mockup. I'll leave that task to the excellent UX engineers here.
