Another reason why both figures should be made clear on here, to avoid this confusion, for the past few weeks officials (and a lot of overnights as well) posted on here have just included +1, with only @TVRatingsUK providing consolidated figures without +1. I always thought there was an unwritten rule that both figures would be posted so that all posters are happy and can compare ratings how they like. I think that's why there's been so many +1 arguments lately, and in some cases it seems it's being done deliberately to cause arguments.
Why on earth does it cause you such a problem. We're all bright enough here to mentally adjust the figures to factor in whether +1 is or is not excluded - and figures with and without +1 are freely available online for anyone who wants them.
