comment What is the correct spelling of wire frame?
@JohnGB: My comment was not so much about this specific case, but about the trend to google for stuff or use wikipedia when more authoratative sources can be consulted just as easily.

comment What is the correct spelling of wire frame?
While your advice is pragmatic, I'd prefer to use a dictionary. There are plenty of them online nowadays, so it won't be any more effort than googling.

comment How do I link people back to the mobile site from the full site?
Don't force me to the mobile site just because I happen to be using a mobile device! Let me go to the normal site. Maybe show a hint that there is a mobile version, but do not assume that you know better than I do where I want to go.

comment Why do webpages scroll vertically instead of horizontally?
@Anthony: scroll bars existed before mouse wheels. No references, eye witness account...

@Sylverdrag: if you fight the terms without the quotes, Utility still wins by a mile: 12.2 million versus only 2.7 million....

comment Filtering and Sorting Names and Location
If you have the image online, edit your question and add a link to the image. Someone with enough rep may then be kind enough to add it for you.

comment Should shortcut keys be prefaced by shift/alt/ctrl?
You can also show an auto-fading/closing hint about the shortcut when a user clicks the "normal" button/menu option. I have seen it in various web applications now and it is a very nice way to learn about available short cuts.

comment browser geolocation: offer to user automatically?
I'd go for 2. Don't ask for authorization until you need it. I may be visiting accidentally (clicked wrong link in another page) and may not want to have anything to do with your site at all, let alone with authorizing it to query my location.

comment How to avoid 12:00 AM midnight/noon confusion in a time input field?
+1 This confusion is why I always prefer the 24 hour clock... Though I suppose that people used to the am/pm stuff might not be as confused as those who are not?

comment Should action buttons be separate or part of a single toolbar?
@unor: that's why usually ctrl-up and ctrl-down are used. The fact that you cannot use specific keys doesn't invalidate the need to be able to perform those actions using keyboard shortcuts.

comment How to choose the better placement for Sidebar: Left or Right?
If by "he's correct" you mean the team lead being rightin wanting the navigation on the left, I'd say he is wrong. And points #2 and #6 in the article you reference actually dictates that the primary content be on the left and secondary content like navigation on the right.
