I'm sure this has been discussed, so indulge on me if this is a very-dead-horse.
I finished yesterday re-reading CoS and this passage was glaring at the end:
"Voldemort put a bit of himself in me?" Harry said, thunderstruck. "It certainly seems so." [Said Dumbledore].
Now, harry had only 12 years at the time, so he must have forgotten... because if not, when DD presented him with the info about horcruxes, he would have fainted :)
Being serious, Harry-or-his-scar-is-a-horcrux is so obvious that it must be false.

the Diary of Tom Riddle was a Horcrux right? And when the soul in it possessed Ginny she lost all control and memory of what she did. She said to Harry in OoTP he cant have been possessed by Voldemort because he always knew what he was doing. So I cant see Harry or his scar being a Horcrux without him being aware of it - it makes no sense at all.
Well -- I don't think it doesn't make sense. There're rules we are not given set in stone. The soul bit in Harry['s scar] could be unable to do anything when inside a full fledged, resistant person. Maybe the pains in the scar are signs of the soul bit fighting for possesion or expansion, triggered by Voldemort's changes of mood.
I don't actually believe it, but I think we can't simply rule it as "nonsense". All possesions are equal? All people is equally prone to possesion? Maybe the scar is an isolated receptacle. Etc.
