I'm pulling this from the YMMV topic and putting it up for discussion.

  • The entire Horcrux quest. Not only do they never leave Britannia and spend 90% of the quest in a tent, snapping at each other because of a Horcrux (very intelligent J.K.R.), but the gorram Horcruxes are barely protected, at least compared to the first two (Gringotts silliness apart). What, Voldemort found himself out of budget for the last pieces of his soul? It was too much trouble to put at least some defense in them? What should have come as an Indiana Jones/Conan the Barbarian-style quest of epic proportion instead came as a weekend with bernie with wands.

Any way we can rewrite this to be a little less, er, vicious while still getting the point across?

well few people knew about Horcuxes. So maybe Vodly didn't think he needed a lot of protection. But there was protection with the 6th book one. It took Vodly a long time to learn about Horcues about as long as it took him to find the Secret Chamber that he was heir too.

I agree with you. I thought the locket being hidden in an obscure cave that Voldemort had visited in his childhood, protected by the door which needs blood, and the invisible boat, not to mention the Inferi was quite an elaboarate setup. Compared to that, the diadem seems almost like an afterthought. Is there some way we could phrase this as an argument?

I dunno, I think it rather fits voldemort. He was feeling pretty damn secure by the time some of them were hidden, so he could have easily gotten a bit careless.
