Even Tumbler does it wrong

When I read this post, stating that Tumblr calculates the URL character length of shortened URLs correctly, I thought: No, it’s all done wrong!

Even though the feature mentioned is a good idea, the character counter still counts up! What is the user supposed to do with that information? A better counter would decrease the number of available characters instead of simply increasing the number of used characters.
