@Hairy If one looks up "less" on wiktionary.org, one can see that "less" has been used to mean "fewer" from its earliest appearance in OE.
"Amount" is a quite different kettle of fish, I agree, and goes with uncountable nouns.
Bonus points for "depredation" of the language though, quite a picture. "Proper" usage has however changed since Dickens
