I prefer to be able to see the counts, since I can see, if for some
reason I find it interesting, how many people are online in the group
without having to either count them or collapse the group.  I generally
don't need to know this number, but having it accessibly only when the
group is collapsed has never made sense to me.

For no particular reason, I vote for group counts always.  However, if
you take them away entirely I will shed no tears.
