It's 1 vote, 1 view, yet 1 kviews?
One wouldn't say one kilotons, or one kilobytes.

Actually, in this case I think it's fine. Because unlike "kilobyte", "kiloview" isn't really a word, I read "kviews" as "thousand views", so "1 kview" would feel wrong to me.

I won't comment on other singular/plural issues, because I like being alive.

    @oKtosiTe, Giant S-es are immune for helmets. Especially if wielded by someone with a high geek factor. – Toon Krijthe Jan 8 '11 at 12:37
