'Net Roots' Event Becomes Democrats' Other National Convention
"Net roots"? Are they trying to sound like Grampa Simpson?

For the record, "netroots" gets 1,120,000 hits on Google while "net roots" clocks in at 67,900 hits. That's actually more than I would have expected, but it's still less than 6%. Time to change the style guide, folks.
