I did, yes.
Odd that they use such a narrow set of forums, innit?

Once upon a time, in the Kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for six days.
Eventually, Archangel Michael found him on the seventh day resting.
He enquired of God, 'Where have you been?'

God pointed downwards through the clouds. Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, 'What is it?'
'It's a planet,' replied God, 'and I've put LIFE on it.
I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance.'
'Balance?' inquired Michael, still confused.

God explained, pointing down to different parts of the Earth.
'For example, North America will be a place of great opportunity
and wealth, while South America is going to be poor; the Middle East over
there will be a hot spot, and Russia will be a cold spot. Over there I've
placed a continent of white people and over there is a continent of black people.'

God continued, pointing to the different countries.
This one will be extremely hot and arid while this one will be very cold and covered in ice.'
The Archangel , impressed by God's work, then pointed to another area of land and asked,
'What's that?'

'Ah,' said God. That's the North of England, the most glorious place on earth.
There are beautiful people, seven Premiership football teams in the North West alone, and many impressive cities.
It is the home of the world's finest artists, musicians, writers, thinkers, explorers and politicians.
The people from the North of England are going to be modest, intelligent and humorous
and they're going to be found travelling the world.
They'll be extremely sociable, hard-working and high-achieving, and they
will be known throughout the world as speakers of truth.'

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed,-
'What about balance God, you said there will be BALANCE!'
God replied very wisely:-
'Wait till you see the bunch of tossers- I'm putting down in the South of England !'

I wish we could know whether the yikesing is because they're taking a genuine moral stance, or merely because they're cowards.

It's serial decadence, maybe. Just as h2g2 these days is a pretty dismal travesty of what it once was, the same can be said of the British Broadcasting Corporation. But most faded and tainted of all, it seems, is the political establishment of the Kingdom.

Here's another curiosity.

A873876

I don't know if it's moderated because UK regs for septic tank design have progressed or ... ermm ...

Nothing.

So while the article currently sits hidden behind a screen which states "This Guide Entry has been hidden, because it contravenes our House Rules in some way. However, the author can easily re-write it so that it doesn't break the rules, so let's hope they do just that." I have no notion what I would need to change. If indeed I could given that it is an Article edited by U158291.

Given that A835599 remains unhidden, perhaps we should suppose the part breaching the rules must have been introduced by the Editor?

The plot thickens ?
A873876 remains hidden but A835599 is available.
Which is the original ?

The average starting salary of a police constable is £23,000, increasing to about £30,000 after four years’ service. This is topped up with add-on payments. Retirement on a pension at 50 is a distinct possibility.
