Well, I’m confused as to why you just didn’t remove the offending photos and leave what was within the rules (the under 300 word excerpt and my words in comment#1) there in the first place. You just should have removed the entire thing since it is so decimated now it is worthless. I’ve only been here since ‘98, but someday I’ll get the hang of this.
And the 300 word limit applies to articles longer than 600 words. Shorter articles must be excerpted to 50%. Just for everyone's information.
