    Are you a software developer? If you are, you already know why this happens. See also twitter.com/codinghorror/status/1165936105 – Robert Harvey Oct 25 '13 at 21:31

    @RobertHarvey Ouch. Although I would welcome Jeff (even if he was carrying a big S) for taking the long trip to Germany :) (Of course I know why this happens, which is why I assiduously avoid it in my code) – Tim Pietzcker Oct 25 '13 at 21:33

    Given that this almost always shows 1 new answer(s) and very rarely several new answers this one seems more fix worthy than the others – Richard Tingle Oct 25 '13 at 21:48

    I don't understand why these types of errors come up all the time. I never have them when I write code. "answer"+(has_multiple_whatzits ? "s" : "")+"to this question" – Aza Oct 25 '13 at 22:13

    Or even simpler; user answer(s) rather than answers – Richard Tingle Oct 25 '13 at 23:34
