the national website, as appropriate, to websites which fail to meet the established
guidelines/standards for The USGenWeb Project or to websites which display
inappropriate content. Coordinators of any websites found to be in non-compliance
shall be notified of such and shall be given a period of two (2) weeks in which to
bring their website into compliance. The two-week time limit shall be flexible based
on justifiable reasons presented by the website coordinator.
