Only in England would so many become upset that so few weren't using fewer correctly.

This is SOOOO close to my heart it has the same beat :Soapbox: I HATE this misuse of "less" and of course as I am sensitive to it, I find it constantly on TV, radio and in fact whenever anyone speaks a version of English.
Arghhhhhhh! :rant:
Grammar Nazi? I've never been called that, pedantic yes, but I call it correct use of English.
Rant over. :o

Yay for Tesco! I just had the less vs. fewer fight with my sister in law last week.
