Hi DOB,

Not sure what this word means, but it did not make the list of one-word mentions in our sample. Sorry!

Hi Helen, thanks for promoting your book. We always are so receptive to that here.

I want to know what word the kids would use for Dr. Helen Bond's posts.

Spam??

This appears to be at least the third thread you have here, flogging your book. It's a violation of Amazon's terms of service. Don't worry, I won't rat you out (I've done worse), but don't be surprised if your posts disappear.

You are welcome to flog away on the Meet Our Authors forum, and it is probably more productive.

Cheers!

You're first person outside of me and Brits who I've heard use the word flog for promoting and selling. Someone here gave me a hard time over it once...they had no idea what it meant.

It is definitely against policy. Not sure if they ever do anything about it, but it is generally considered bad form.

I'm eager to steer this in a more productive direction:

The fact that children describe Obama as "cool" is probably the most irrelevant bit of tripe that one could possibly espouse. Kids think professional wrestling and being able to fart with your armpit is "cool"... ok; being able to fart with your armpit IS cool... but I digress.

What, specifically, is a reader supposed to take away from this? It is scary to think that there are people who view this kind of nonsense as something relevant or substantive.

NIU: Funny! I don't remember when I fist started using the word. Wonder what your friend didn't likr about it. A little passive-aggressive?

They have refused to sell the books of spammers before. Most authors are pretty good at standing down after they realize their error though. The "Meet Our Authors" forum has been a good outlet for them too.

RE: It is scary to think that there are people who view this kind of nonsense as something relevant or substantive.

I'm not sure why you think anyone believes this is "relevant or substantive." There's certainly been no indication that anyone here does.

And I don't think you succeeded in your effort to -- to use your own words -- "steer this in a more productive direction."

All you did was overreact by some huge factor and come across as overly emotional over a triviality. You're taking this way, way too seriously.
