I think you asked for it.

To be fair, most of the recent traffic to my homenode was generated by you. It was not my intention to cause such controversy, and I dont think I would have on my own. Needless to say any humourous/educational aspect seems well and truly lost...the script is gone.

At least when someone clicks a homenode button that produces some sort of silly message in the CB, the person had to take an affirmative step to cause it. Your "joke" was triggered merely by visiting your homenode -- a perfectly reasonable act for someone to take. It wasn't particularly funny, and the extra noise in the CB simply served to inflame the discussion further.

    yours,
    Michael
