comment Sorting with a Click or Double Click? Better ways?
Sure they make use of double click for things like zooming in, but they don't rely on double click as the only way to zoom in. Double click isn't even a convention across operating systems, so I recommend against using it for primary functionality.

I am a little fuzzy on your use of "sort". It sounds like they pick the type and then they "sort" by selecting a sub type. Could you explain what sort does differently than select?

comment Select All & Clear All vs. Invert
This methodology usually works well but I don't agree with your third point. No one would logically think that they would have to first select all in order to clear what they had already selected.

comment How do I make a table row on a web page look draggable?
I like the Basecamp method, but it is best used on vertical lists of items because the icon points up and down. A traditional drag surface applies to a less restricted drag and drop, but it isn't as obvious what it does. I believe the most important part is the cursor change. It is easier for the user to notice their cursor changing shapes as they move around than for them to recognize what a few dots or some other icons mean.

comment Recommended UI/UX conference in the UK?
None of this discussion belongs on this question. The original issue with CW should have been asked on Meta along with the discussion regarding UI/UX/User Interface semantics. If you feel that you can contribute the community, you should follow the correct procedure. Being argumentative rarely achieves anything.

comment What is an intuitive method of providing the user with a means of viewing an enlarged version of an image via a lightbox?
The drawback to coming up with unique implementations for UI is that the user is always going to have an easier time with actions they recognize. The magnifying glass is all over the place, so if you display one users are going to recognize what it is for. You could probably get away with just using a plus(+) sign in the corner if you really didn't want to use a magnifying glass.

comment Should you place the “add a comment” form above or below the list of comments?
+1 to having a "comment" link on the top, putting the form on the bottom, and using an anchor so they can click the link on top if they want to comment right away.

comment Should disabled options ever be hidden?
Same goes for any administrative functionality built into the site.

comment Should disabled options ever be hidden?
+1 on role based auth. This is exactly what I was going to say. If the user of type x has no way to become a user of type y (without being promoted), why would we ever display all of type y's functionality?

comment Hover over a disabled item to know why it's disabled. What do you think?
I agree with Glen. It would be a nice surprise for the users who notice. Plus it is usually really easy to implement. If you don't mind, I might steal the idea the next time I need to disable something and still leave it visible(I usually just don't display it if they don't need it, but sometimes it's necessary.)
