    Default Moon-landing tapes 'Erased', like.

    What would members of P.ie do if something really important was 'erased' ? : http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/20...g-tapes-erased . (Not to detract from the proliferation of An Bord Debollix Nua threads or the current crap JCP/Opposition idiots...) This tale is doing the Twitter rounds .

    Video: Nasa's restored footage of Apollo 11's moon landing | Science | guardian.co.uk , people are awfully casual re adequate archival resourcing and indeed encoding. This is as bad as the Archives of Cologne collapsing cos of a transport system problem...

    Unfortunately it happens all the time. The only people who from day 1 realise the importance of archival records are usually historians and archivists. People compiling documents at the time often don't think it terms of what happens to the stuff afterwards.

    Albert Reynolds wanted to move the General Register Office to Roscommon without grasping the fact that the archives, to be accessible and in some cases due to age, couldn't be moved.

    The anti-treaty IRA deliberately boobytrapped Ireland's irreplaceable public records office records, dating back a millennium. The leaders simply saw them as old records from British rule. Historians still go ballastic at the thought of the stupidity of that one act that destroyed almost all our records before 1922.

    Some decades ago a court house in my local town was closed down and sold to a supermarket chain. The court records, dating back as early as the 18th century, were dumped in a skip as waste paper. Luckily some locals recognised the importance of the stuff and salvaged what they could. But vast amounts were dumped.

    It is all too common unfortunately.

    l have salvaged irreplaceable docs from a bonfire. lnteresting that FF/GP would consider destroying the Ryan evidence also ; but hey historical memory counts as nothing to those who wish rewrite history and make truths subservient to whatever gloss they want to impose on their consistent failures. Mostly l reckon the 30 year rule should be reduced to 10. The NASA 'remiss' is tragic.

    "Moon-landing tapes 'Erased', like. "
    I don't quite get why you have the word "like" at the end of the title. Are you from California? Are you a young female who wears Ug boots and fake tan? Should several "OMGs" and "so's" be added to it?

    Part of the uniform of our transatlantic inspired younger generation who insist on destroying the English language with phrases such as "like, so, OMG and WTF".
    Its off OP alright but can't we agree when starting a thread on the moon landings to at least use standard english so when the anorak wearing, deodorant shy, lacking in social skills types start adding their paranoid views they might improve themselves?

    I do enjoy watching those self appointed experts giving their pseudo factual reasons why it was all faked as if they understood everything they were talking about and actually had carried out verifiable experiments to prove what they claim.

    No. l don't think l will be taking advice on the correct useage of english from someone who is obviously too constipated to discuss archive conservation and retention of historical data. I can't be bothered with apologists for ineptitude, criminal damage and blatant liars, especially those of the FF ilk.
