Yes. And I'm also shocked by how often I see "noone." What? Isn't it always two words? "No one." No one. Why do I keep seeing noone? It looks ridiculous.
Agreed on the less/fewer thing. I hear that all the time, like sportscasters who say "They have less wins than USC!" No, they have fewer wins.
Similar to that is when I hear people say "velocity" when they just mean speed. Listen, people, you can say speed if you mean speed. You're not an uneducated moron if you say speed. But if you use velocity incorrectly, then you do look like a moron. Velocity is speed and direction. If you're just talking about speed, just ****ing say speed.
