Thanks for pointing it out Jim.

I don't think removing it completely is the right way to handle issues like this. Afterall, Fred's is a real company, even if the original definition was irrelevant.

When editing the Flossary, the right course of action as an editor is to improve the content, even if that means removing all the content of the page or "blanking" it.

If it's something that truly has no potential validity for investors, such as "Homer Simpson" then we should remove it. We will create a way for you to easily flag items for deletion similar to boards or comments.

We'll also put in something like a star rating system that will allow editors to vote on the quality of each article. This will help us find valid pages with invalid content.

Thoughts on this approach?
