LPP 28

According to a recent press release:

UC Riverside now has more than 17,000 students, 2,000 staff members and nearly more than 800 faculty members.

Um. Nearly more than? So, exactly 800, then?

Proofread, people--always proofread.

    Is....is this a PET peeve? 'Cause I've never even seen it before.

    Um, lack of proofreading? As a pet peeve? Because, surely, no one could actually deliberately write "nearly more than."
