A few years ago, I made a post that mentioned in passing that I have webbed toes. About a month later, my logs started showing up a fair number of referals from search engines from people looking for info about webbed toes. So I promised that I’d try to put up a picture. A couple of days later, I posted said picture.
Since that time, those three posts have collected over 900 comments between them. It turns out that there are are lots of people (depending on how you define ‘lots’) who have syndactyly (webbed toes or fingers), but there isn’t a whole lot of information about it on the internet that’s easy to find. Some people are just surprised to find out there are others like themselves with webbed toes. Others are embarrassed by their toes and seek information on cosmetic surgery to correct the condition.
In any case, comments on blog posts aren’t the best venue for detailed discussion. With the recent announcement of the first official release of bbPress, I’ve finally set up some forums for more organized discussions. So, if you want to discuss any issues related to webbed toes (or fingers), visit the new Syndactyly Forums.
