  The most unusable branch locator I have seen so far

Today I wanted to locate an HSBC branch in London, close to either the office or my home. Thanks to HSBC I got upset before 8.

That starts fine, they have an "interactive map" or allow you to enter your postcode. Unfortunately they use only the beginning of the postcode (SW in my case) and then list you many towns in this area. Using the map stops at the same level. Then you click one of them (I should do all of them as I don't know some which may be close) and get No branch exists in ...

Is it so hard to list the closest ones from the given postcode or place them on a map? And what about just removing from the list the places without a branch?

fwiw, google maps should work: "hsbc, near SWX AB0"

Just to answer your (mostly rhetorical, I know) question: no, it is not hard, at all. There's a bit of math involved if you want calculate the distance between two LAT/LNG coordinate pairs while taking into account earth's curvature, but that's even only really necessary at larger distances. Worse comes to worst, embed Google Maps (or Yahoo Maps, or Bing Maps, etc.) into your page and use the JS API to add the locations you want to display, and let the user search there for a closest location.

I keep several blogs & forums and allow people to write their comments on them. I check regularly and remove any swear words, etc. I also ask commentors not to leave any derogatory terms on the blogs/forums.. However, that said, am i still legally responsible for the content on my blog/forums if they write a defamatory comment or abusive comments?. Many thanks..
