well, it's been that way as far back as the code that walker set us up with.

for one i think it's useful because you may know approximately when an article was published with respect to when another article was published.  so, you go back through the pages of approved articles from the homepage, page by page until you find it.  it also is a really quick indicator to our visitors of how many articles are currently approved and available.

taking this off the homepage isn't really going to solve anything, just so you know.  you're wasting your time by considering it's not there for a purpose.  this is mostly because the category filtering of the data also uses the same homepage query (altered to filter by the selected category) and homepage display templates.
