That is correct!
Personally, I found it to be an irrelevant number anyway, and it drove behavior we'd rather not see - i.e. writing "creative" thread titles to get someone to click on it to get the view number increased. Of course, once someone got there and saw there was nothing to it, they didn't stay long. That has an overall (again - my opinion) detrimental effect on the site. Yes, we still have some outrageous thread titles, but we no longer provide any incentive for that alone. You still need to start a thread in which people want to participate, maybe flag, before there's any impact that will drive up the attention to it.

Yes, I remember the view feature. I forget why it was dumped? I thought it was helpful to gauge a threads traffic.
