Hi guys! Thanks for the invite! I noticed there is an abundance of top flossers but I have yet to met any bottom flossers. The bottoms have right too. Let's bottom floss diligently! :)

I have a question on Wiki content. At one point I edited an article in Wikipedia and my entry was promptly removed because it was not "fact" but "opinion" according to the rascal who cut my prose. That was my first and last contribution to Wikipedia which I now avoid if there is another source.

I've skimmed this board and had a look at some of the Flossary entries, mostly about books. Most of them say "XYZ is a book written by ABC." If I were searching the Internet for a book and I found that I would be mildly annoyed. Truth is I generally pick the amazon.com entry because I'm likely to find book reviews which seldom are "fact" and almost always are "opinion." By reading sufficient pro and con opinions I can make up my mind to spend the time and money on the book or to ignore it. Later I sometimes contribute my own book review and comment on other reviews.

I wonder how the Flossary book section can be made meaningful so that it is competitive with other Internet book sources. One idea is to include links to book reviews. That was my first though since I have several reviews on the web.

Of course, there is all the other standard book stuff like author(s), subject, publisher, year, presentation (hard, soft or audio) and an image of the cover.

That's my Bottom Flossing Question of the Day (BFQD)

Cheers!
