I just had a read through of this (http://www.geocities.com/freedomforfission/cyc/alternatives.html) and I discovered a number of things that I've now corrected. It's frightening to think how long that crap was there.

Well, I thought that posting what you asked could be considered a bannable offense, so I haven't done so :D

EDITED to remove objectionable content (re. Nereid's post below).

It's frightening to think how long that crap was there.Glom, I've taken the trouble to edit the title of your thread; per the rules (http://www.bautforum.com/showthread.php?t=32864):
3. Language

No cursing. This goes along with being polite. This website is read by a lot of kids, including young school kids who want to learn about astronomy, space, and space exploration. The Universe is a marvelous place, full of beauty and wonder, and if you despoil it by using bad language you will quickly invoke the ire of the administrators and moderators. Think of the language used on TV during an after-school special and you'll get the idea. Deliberately misspelled bad words, or replacing key letters with different characters or numbers will not be tolerated. Same goes with adult topics -- talk about them somewhere else. If you do need to post something risqué, stick with arcane scientific terminology.

This includes avatars: since you can upload an image to be your avatar, use care in choosing that image. Contact a moderator or administrator if you have any doubts.One of the things we definitely DON'T want is for BAUT to get onto the 'black list' of sites in applications such as NetNanny - there are rather too many public and school libraries which employ such apps.

Would you mind editing your post please?

Don't take things too hard, Glom. We all make mistakes, and the only thing to do in this case is to correct our errors and move on. Such is the nature of science.
