There are parts of the country where you can still be arrested for tad-worrying.

Which aspects of the Forum annoys you ?
Posters which recommend gear they have never heard and only read about on the internet, then pass themselves off as guru's.
People who can't/won't check their spelling or their punctuation, making their posts difficult to read.

Could we please have a "Spell check" button that could be used before people actually post their contributions? It is sorely needed. And if folk could please not write five lines of text without a single comma or full stop; sometimes I struggle to understand what is meant.
This isn't strictly speaking about the forum, more about What Hi-Fi online. In the section about TV reviews, it is not possible to select TVs by screen size. The various screen sizes are listed, but the links are not active. Could they be made active please? Also, there is only one category above 50 inches, which may have been okay three years ago but seems insufficient in late 2012. May I suggest that we have three new categories: 50 to 57 inches, 58 to 67 inches, and lastly the real giants 68 inches and above.
