Urgent! Our home at Proboards has been deleted again. We know who was responsible: PAST, you are childish. We will be shortly posting a new Toothing URL here. Stay with us....

Scam Site Warning I've had reports that some people are running 'Toothing scam sites. Just a note to say that if a site isn't listed on the panel to the left, it has nothing to do with me, or the 'Toothing communit in general. Be very careful of sites that ask you to pay money, even small amounts, to access forums or matchmaking services. True 'Toothers will be aware none of that is at all necessary, and that leaving these people with your mobile phone number and a gratuity is asking for trouble. Remember, folks, be safe.

Hello. No major updates - I was on Air America last Friday, and Toothing made an appearance in Le Monde yesterday. I've also heard tell that The Australian ran a story on us, but I've been unable to find it. There are some more interesting Toothing stories to come, though, so look out for them and if you see any, let me know.

Big hits today come from Spiegel Online and B.T.dk. Oh, apparently we were mentioned in Greece's biggest newspaper, Ta Nea, yesterday. Oh, and on Howard Stern yesterday, too. Not bad. (If anyone has an MP3 of that, or can scan any offline 'Toothing appearances, I'd love to hear from you - please email me) Other news: Yahoo have given us our own category, which is nice. And thanks to the female 'Toothers who got in touch after yesterday's enquiry, those of you who are going to be involved in the article should have heard back from me (and maybe the journalist) by now.

Just a few things to mention this morning. First, there's a big article in The Independent today, both in the actual paper and online. One of our 'veteran' female 'Toothers (Tania) did an interview yesterday for an Austrian radio station, so listen out for that. There are a couple more pieces coming up on US and Australian radio stations, too, so you might hear yours truly again soon! Oh, another new forum, tooo - this time for American 'Toothers. Finally (for now), if there are any female 'Toothers out there who fancy appearing in an article for a woman's glossy magazine here in the UK, get in touch. Thanks!

A little bit of news - since the 'Toothing Forum is English language only, a couple of International 'Toothers have taken it upon themselves to create 'Toothing boards for their mother tongues. The Italian board is here, and the French board is here. There's a Dutch board here, too. If you are going to set up a 'Toothing Forum for your language, let me know, and I'll happily link it and add it to the sidebar.

Well, what a few weeks. Apologies for not updating with news, but I've been very busy. So, in order of discovery: This excellent pastiche appeared just before my last entry here, but I didn't catch it in time. A rather sceptical piece ran in the Guardian on Friday 9th April. Better, Toothing was referenced in The Guide on the 10th of April. On the 15th of April, The Mirror ran a short story on Bluesnarfing, which referenced 'Toothing in passing at the end. But this morning (the 19th), things really took off. Reuters put out a 'Toothing story featuring an interview with yours truly. A lot of people picked up on it, like, for example,The Times of India, ZDNet.co.uk, and, most notably, CNN and Yahoo News. The last two were linked from lots of other places, including The Drudge Report, and Portal Of Evil News. A story also appeared on The Register. And at some point Storyhunters did something too. Presumably all this breaking news was what inspired Cruel.com to make this Blog their Cruel site of the day. And maybe it was that gave Toothing the push onto Fark. But anyone who's spent any time today on the Toothing Forum will have noticed it's not just the English language world that's tracking 'Toothing. One of Italy's most popular newspapers, La Repubblica did a big story. Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf ran a piece today, as did a paper in Norway. Yahoo News republished their article in French. And there was another piece in Liberation. Czech links, Polish links - too many to list here. There are some more to come, I'm sure, but it's been a big day for the 'Toothing community. If you see anything else - particularly in print, where I can't use google to find it - do email me! Thanks, and keep 'Toothing!
