See this, one of the notices for why a post is locked (emphasis mine):

This is totally wrong. If it is distinct objects, number should be used:
Amount is used in reference to mass nouns (i.e., uncountable nouns such as bravery, water, and charisma). Number is used in reference to count nouns (i.e., countable nouns such as dog, year, and eyeball).
It also should be "large", not "high".
Can this please be changed to "large number"? It is disintegrating my pedantic brain :o
