Ok, there'd be exactly one person fewer complaining. But who am I to complain about someone complaining? It's just sad that such a minor detail has been fixated on.

Make that one person less, not fewer.
Speaking of "less" versus "fewer," I think we should write to Justin Bieber and get him to release another song retconning why he sang about "One Less Lonely Girl" when in the grammatical context of the original song he could only have meant "One Fewer Lonely Girls."

I realize the way he said it originally was an artistic choice, but it just doesn't stand up to grammatical scrutiny.
Also, Gotye should re-title his famous song "Somebody Whom I Used to Know" and Felicia Day should re-title her latest "I'm the One Who's Cool"...
Democratic socialism is the hope of human freedom.
