** Also, on the subject of the Harry Potter books being such bad writing: [[AVeryPotterMusical let's see you write a better story, right now, in front of everyone!]]

*** And, Voldemort only returned at the end of the fourth book. The fifth book had him working incognito as he attempted to get his hands on the prophecy, thereby leaving him too preoccupied to worry about Harry. By the sixth book, everyone knows Voldemort has returned, and as result the wizarding world is on pretty high alert. Even if the wards didn't protect against something like this, I doubt it would've made it past the security measures that were in place.

*** Now, me, I have a hard time picturing Death Eaters looking through a muggle phone book or doing any sort of muggle sleuthing to track down Harry.

** A bit of a long shot, but maybe Grawp's understanding of human speech was picked up by seeing Hagrid engage in it with other people, rather than just being spoken to himself. (Considering he..."remembered" Hermione's name, it clearly left ''some'' impact on him.) And since Harry and Hermione commonly call Hagrid by his surname, that's just how he chose to refer to him as well.

** Incorrect. Harry keeps sending letters to Sirius with new, random school owls in book 4. Owls clearly have the power to seek out addressees wherever they are, even when the sender doesn't know. And how the hell could Voldemort not know where Harry lives? He lives in a muggle neighborhood, there's absolutely nothing keeping his location a secret and absolutely no mention of anything in the series that would indicate otherwise.

** I think the word you're looking for is "incidentally"...In any case, was it ever stated before the seventh book that Voldemort knew where Harry lived? The only time I can think of where Harry sent a letter to someone without an address was by using an owl they had already sent to him, and I doubt the protective charms would be unable to defend against something so predictable as a letter bomb.

* Forget Sirius - why in the Seven Hells did he never mail ''Harry'' either a bomb or a Portkey to his lair?! Some nutjob managed to mail Hermie, basically, an acid bomb, so we know they don't screen the incoming owls for dangerous items, and, accidentaly, ''why the hell don't they''?!
