I am advised that the deleted Tartan/Novis/C&C thread has been recovered and is now available for download as a Word document for all those who wish to review it and make up their own minds about things.
There are two versions available:
1. The complete thread.
2. The edited thread with all repetitive and off subject posts removed for less reading time and easier understanding.
If these direct links do not work for you, you may need to go to this thread after completing a brief registration process.

As this post may be deleted at any time, I would urge those with interest to act quickly and to preserve copies of the links elsewhere.
