All top notch authors. Would they put up with being edited? NO. Two years of my life's research and verging on insanity have been viscously cut from the archives never to be appreciated by the children of tomorrow.
Surely there has been a mistake, no one could be so savage! and brutal this is heritage, history, our children's children will curse the day....
and one that we didn't take lightly, but after much soul-searching and many committee meetings we came to the conclusion that future generations will somehow have to manage without the benefit of your pearls of digital wisdom, Chris.
Actually, it took us about ten seconds to decide that the archive was too big, and was slowing performance, so out came the old hand-tooled, beautifully engraved, Toledo steel deleting mouse.
The deleted content isn't gone forever - it's stored in the PCA vault, and could be resurrected if it's ever needed.
