It takes about 30 seconds to load each page on your site. This is the only website where this delay happens. Do you know of any reason this happens or what I can do about it?

This is disgusting and should be removed from the site. Not only is this teaching others how to build a weapon, but it is extremely dangerous
Have you read it ? Why do you think its "extremely dangerous" ?

If you read the other comment you would know that I've read it Steveastrouk.

"Ever find yourself needing to tar and feather someone, but lacking an angry mob to back you up? Maybe you wish to exact quick and messy physical revenge in a hurry?"

Tar and feathering is abhorrent - why bring it up? Reminds me of Godwin's law!

"home-made pressure chamber"
Need I comment?!!!

As some of the comments point out:

hmmm...thought train arriving at station 1:
-this gun can fire flour;
-flour is flammable and in powder form, therefore having a large surface area;
-when flour has maximum surface contact with air, it becomes extremely volatile;
anybody else on the same thought train as me?"

That's why I think it's extremely dangerous.

Telling people how to build something that is designed to fire missiles at others (and no it's not just water) is not a good idea. what next - how to build a bomb, so you can fill it with something else flammable?
You want to ban it because other people can think of ways to be silly?

So, if somebody comments that a pie could be thrown, we delete all pie recipes?

If somebody comments that knives can kill, we delete all projects using a knife?

By your logic, we should ban all references water pistols, because they can fire things that are not water.

In fact, my own paper catapult should be banned, because you could use it to fire a small watch battery, and paper is flammable, and we all know that watch batteries explode if you throw them in the fire, so really it's not a paper catapult, it's an explosive device, so it should be banned immediately, and you should report me to the DHS...

Yes because an over reaction makes your side looks credible!

The tut mentions flammable missiles - not intentionally - granted...but that doesn't make it any less dangerous.

I've had enough of responding to your silly silly points.

I stand by what I've said. It should be taken down.

No, an over-reaction makes you look hysterical.

Go and calm down.

I've already reported you to the DHS... Must've been, what, two years ago?
Try reading the comments less selectively, and you will notice positive, supportive comments from four people who work at Instructables HQ.

And, while you're busy flaming this project, take a moment to consider how you would feel if somebody made equally negative comments about one of the projects you have posted... Oh. They can't, can they?
You're taking a dig at me for not posting any tuts on here! Wow - that's pathetic. :)
If they find any of my tuts offensive I'd be very surprised.

Just because I've never bothered to put anything on here doesn't mean that
A. I don't have any on any site. And
B. That I have any less right to be a part of this community and to not like one of the tuts based on the insensitive language used in the description and the violent/dangerous nature of the tut.

Just because people who work at Instructables HQ have put positive comments doesn't mean I'm going to fall into line. I don't think it's appropriate and should be taken down! I'm allowed to think and say my own thoughts. Unless you're telling me that Instructables is part of some Borg like collective!!!!!?????

How dare you infer that I didn't read the other comments. Yes I saw the slap on the back comments too - but I was asked what I thought was wrong with it - to justify why I think it should be removed/what I'd said above. why would I put the positive comments down in an argument against it!!!!??? That defies logic!
