Default Suggestion: Jargon busting glossary

If there was one criticism I would make of your splendid reviews, it would be the fact that you often use AV tech specific jargon that most newbies would often not know, such as panning, separation, banding, ghosting, aliasing, DNR, etc. Granted, it's fairly easy to guess the meaning of some of these, but not all of them. I would like to suggest that someone here writes, and updates whenever needed, a glossary of sorts in order to eliminate this problem forever. I'd also like to see a link to it on the homepage and/or at the end of each disc review, just like the links to the hardware specs for your reviewers.

There is a page for that, but it doesn't cover every single term:

Review Methodology

I noticed it doesn't hit EVERY single term listed above, but it is a start.

Oops, I forgot about that page. As you said yourself, though, it's far from a complete list.
