When you click your user name and there is one response you can view the tab reads "1 responses".

Shouldn't it be "1 response"?

Oh, I haven't seen one of these in a while. Where's the giant "S"? –  animuson Jun 1 '12 at 7:00

No. The tab name is 'responses', because it's what you click to go and view your responses. The 1 is a different UI element, that shows the number of 'new' responses as a number. The two are next to each other, but there's no single piece of text that says "1 responses".

It's warning: terrible analogy time as if you had this text:

His son is 1. Bananas are yellow.

and were complaining that "1 bananas" is pluralised incorrectly. Although the two pieces of text are next to each other, they aren't a single phrase.

This is the relevant html:

<a title="your recent responses" href="/users/151211/aakashm?tab=responses">
    <span class="bounty-indicator-tab">1</span>        
    responses
</a>

See? Different pieces of text.

I think it is valid there. The tag is called "responses" and the 1 flag indicates you have one response.

I seriously don't know what it bothers people, but maybe it's because I'm not a native English speaker.

I really hope there is a grammar mistake in my two sentences answer, it will make my last line argument even stronger.... –  user173320 Jun 1 '12 at 7:09

@yoda. You probably forgot the source: "Valid there it is, I think. Indicates you have one response, the flag does. A native English speaker, I am not." (William Shakespeare) –  user173320 Jun 1 '12 at 9:39
