I just had a little snoop (disguised of course) on the fRoots and BBC boards. Megayawn.

Is there any interesting discussion anywhere else?

Some 'other' Fora (whatever) have a more focused outlook....specialty places with more rigidly defined & controlled objectives.

Like grocery stores which sell a narrow range of products, they have their uses and adherents. Mudcat, by Max's choice, is a lot wider in it's scope...especially in the BS area...., thus it gets a lot of traffic. It is also 13 years old and had the database to attract folks.

I, personally, wish there was less pop and rock & such tossed in, but Max doesn't want those restrictions, so *shrug*

Take a moment to contemplate the beauty of forams:

elegant little creatures

In my ambles I have never come across anything quite like the Mudcat. Do you want a translation from medieval Catalan? A recipe that uses Marmite? Lyrics for a song your grandmother sang? The Mudcat is the place.

Others specialize in the study of the foramen (pl. foramena)- an opening, or orifice.
(the egressus could be down and dirty)

The Oxford English Dictionary has not yet come to terms with 'fora.' (What one shouts after one strikes a golf ball?)

I thought this thread was talking about flowers collected from folk musicians...

Q

fori is the genitive singular - some online dictionaries do not make this clear.
