There are languages that have more than one plural form. Sometimes these
languages need to add the %1$s placeholder in the original singular
version to help differentiate between these plural forms.

In case the original singular version ('One thought on
“%2$s”' in this case) is used elsewhere, the translation
with the faulty %1$s will be used, possibly ending up with the
placeholder not being replaced.

The context will prevent that from happening by seperating the strings.
