Title says it all, when displaying the number of comments, it's OK for 1 (comment), and for multiple (comments), but with 0 we do have an "s", I believe we shouldn't :)

Same thing on vf.org using the mobile theme.
Same thing on my current "master" 2.1 forum with bitter sweet theme.

"0 comments" is the correct pluralization.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plural#Usage_of_the_plural
"Treatments differ in expressions of zero quantity: English often uses the plural in such expressions as no injuries and zero points, although no (and zero in some contexts) may also take a singular. In French, the singular form is used after zéro."

I guess that's because I'm french that I found it odd :)

Sorry for the noise.
