    And as a side note, my Feb 10 report ("Dostoevsky.....") is gone from the Astronomy Reports list, perhaps a casualty of war.

    I can easily reconstruct it, I saved the doc file and screenshots from SkySafari. Let me know and I will get at it.

    Thanks again mods, I wish I could help you in a more direct manner to mitigate this problem.

    My mental picture of a spammer is an acne festooned miserable loser with no job and no significant other. He wants to take it out on the world. Very sad.
