It's nice to see a person's post count if you're really interested, and so it's nice that it's displayed in the profile. There's no good reason to display it prominently outside of the profile.
I've seen this and totally agree with this issue. It makes me waste time checking on threads I thought I'll be interested in and will flood the "today's posts/new posts" section. It might also give more work to the mods.
