Is there a report that I can run that will tell me what places are not standardized or have problems? 

 

I have found County Check but it does not seem to give me the results I want as it returns suggestions to things that are already standardized.

Open Lists > Place List and run Geocode. It will automatically assign Lat/Long and Standardized place name to those that do not have geo-coordinates and that it recognises and will present you a list of those that it is uncertain about for you to pick a possible match. Not a report per se. 

 

You could generate Reports > List > Place List with the settings "Print all places in the database" and "Print latitude and longitude if entered". Look for those places lacking lat/long - they probably do not have a Standardized Name. It is possible that you might have manually geocoded a place and not entered a Standardized Name. 

 

Otherwise, it's another SQLite query... for example, Places - Frequency of Use.

Long outstanding wishes still to be fulfilled but the apparent direction of the masses seems to be different from the feelings on these forums.
