8 (Pluto's planetary status has been reinstated according to the Lowell Observatory, which incidentally, discovered Pluto in the first place)

The Pluto naysayers might say this is a conflict of interest.  :-)

If they have time to worry about such crap they have time to go fork themselves too.

It depends on your definition.

And many arguments are merely arguments over definitions.

Pluto is still considered as a dwarf planet (there seem to be other dwarf planets among the Kuiper belt objects), but, according to recent findings, there might be a ninth, bigger planet in our universe - beyond Neptune, or, perhaps, even more.

Pluto is round, has an atmosphere and shows seismic activity.

The new footage from New Horizons alone could be enough to give it back it's former status as a planetimage

I think most objects in space are round since they are revolving. I wonder how will people react if they announce the Earth is not a planet anymore.

Yes, most objects over a certain size,  also because of it's own gravity,but not all dwarf planets are.
You are right, what if a group of Plutonians decide we are no longer a planet? Where would we go?
