Looks like it's only on the front page, when you open the news, some of them have more than 25 comments :)
Yes, the counts were incorrect.
They must have fixed it by now, because the comment count on the front page looks more real now, but it stayed fixed at 25 for several hours last night.
But listen to this: I log in to my bank today, and there's a warning in bold red font, stating that whoever withdrew cash from an ATM yesterday may have had their account swiped clean of cash. It's in the papers already, with screenshots (only in Polish though :) From the screenshots it appears that if you withdrew $100, the system kept debiting your account for $100 time after time, until the balance dropped below $100. The bank is blaming VISA and is busy "rectifying" the problems. Two banks, actually, owned by the same parent company.
I've escaped the Dreamhost thing and this one too, I feel really lucky right now!
