+1 for this. And IMO its the easiest way to do it.
For the rest,
-Keep the posts count hidden, if you really want to know his post count go on his profile.
-The layout is easy to surf so for me its ok.
-The Noob section would be a +, like cbcsteve said.
-Really there is nothing that bugs me about ASC right now.
