"slighted" doesn't make sense in this context, at least in American English, and my British English A to Zed doesn't mention a difference. Can somebody rephrase using a more commonly understood wording? Niteowlneils 14:56, 9 Sep 2004 (UTC)

I'm at a loss here. Maybe "razed"? (Based on the wild coincidence that German has the expression "eine Burg schleifen" with the meaning of tearing it down. Maybe there's a connection there?) Lupo 15:59, 9 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Our article on Dunbar seems to support this. See the paragraph in the middle. It seems it's a technical term for "deliberately destroying". Lupo 16:09, 9 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Yes, definitely. See this Google search. Lupo 16:16, 9 Sep 2004 (UTC)
