comment One word for the type of smile which suggests “I’ve got you! Now you can’t escape!”
There's a smile that says all that? Is there a frown that says, "The truth is, you could actually escape if you wanted to."?

comment Which pronoun refers to a group such as an orchestra — “they” or “it”?
I might have said, "The members of the orchestra go." but that's not specific. "The members of the orchestra go as well" would be fine, but what's wrong with "..with it"? Where did the members of the orchestra go? "With it. (the orchestra)" The fact is that the orchestra is very much apart from its members. The orchestra is generally permanent and distinct from its members. For example, the orchestra may be contractually bound to appear or paid for promotion or royalty reasons, while its members may not be so bound or so paid. The orchestra is an "it" and the members are "them".

comment Is “Stick no bills” correct English?
I'm more used to seeing "Post no bills". "Stick no bills" makes me smile, since in my region the verb "stick" is more often related to "thrust" than it is to "paste". ("Don't stick your nose into other people's business") I know that I personally try to be very careful as to where I stick MY bill....

comment “Picking up your litter puts road-workers at risk” — is this strangely-worded road sign grammatically correct?
"Your littering puts road workers in danger." --(Of course if no one littered, we'd have no need of said roadworkers, so I'm not certain I follow the logic...)
