Thread Name: Origins: Ten Little Indians
Subject: RE: 10 Little Indians
IIRC, this was the title of a murder mystery by Agatha Christie, changed from the original title, which was indeed something like TEN LITTLE NIGGERS. Nowadays I believe the title under which the book can be found is AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. On the whole, I think it's a Good Thing to remove offensive references if no change to the actual content of a text is involved.
