Rename TV Forum

I suggest renaming the TV Forum to Plato's Cave.

Rename TV Forum

That tends to suggest two things, firstly that visitors are in the main literate enough to recognize the allusion and secondly that the Box is a window into otherwise unexplorable territory rather than a medium for mass advertising.

I amend my suggestion to Plato's Television Room

To the second; isn't advertising exactly that? Advertising and programming, for the most part, only serve to perpetuate myth.
