We have been talking up the benefits of bamboo flooring for a while now. We were into the fact that the easily grown wood (grass, actually) not only helped stop the depletion of forests, et al, it also looked great.

Now we hear some detractors. Over at Tree Hugger we are hearing complaints about how easily it scratches, and there is even doubt as to whether or not the quick growing grass is in fact as super-eco as everyone once said. Anyone had bad experiences? Alec H.
