Can we organize retailer reviews?

I recently reviewed a product in the retailer review section and noticed that there is no real order to it for two reasons. The first is that there is no real standard to filling out the product/brand blanks. Some people simply filled in both blanks with the name of the store, while others used the store name in the first blank, and what items were purchased in the second (which I found to be very helpful). The second problem is that the reviews are ordered chronologically. Would it be possible to order them alphabetically so that if I were searching for some Big Als reviews I could find them all in one place instead of searching down the whole list?

That would be useful for me.

First off that script you linked to was abandoned several months back in favor of the below.

The below is a much better solution as compaired to the one I coded that you have linked to. No further development is going to be made to the one I coded.

When it comes to how people enter the data I cant help much there. Unless you spell it out so clearly that even an untrained monkey cant get the info in the wrong spot folks will end up filling in fields in the wrong desired order.
