in light of some recent ill-informed speculations on an astronomy-related Yahoo group of which the MPC has been made aware, this [Martian Trojan] list is being removed for the foreseeable future.

Can someone please tell me what this is in reference to? The quote makes no sense out of context like this.

I e-mailed the Minor Planet Center. They told me that three asteroids, Eureka, 1999 UJ7 and 1998 VF31 were always recognized as Martian trojans. A few minutes after responding to me, the list was restored, and the page that contains that quote no longer exists. I've edited the article to reflect this.
