It's not that easy to do the untangling even manually though. – Szabolcs

Maybe you could turn it into a puzzle and let other people do the untangling :-) – Heike

I could make a web based game, and feed all my graphs to the visitors.

I can't seem to reproduce this problem so I can't test a solution, but try putting Off[PacletInstall::offline] in your kernel/init.m file; it may load soon enough to have effect.

You should not normally need to use Remove. Based on your image I think it is being used proactively to prevent name collisions, but as you have discovered if there are no Global` Symbols you get a (harmless) error message. You should use ClearAll["Global`*"] instead.

Presumably you have a Remove["Global`*"] somewhere, but without more information this question cannot be answered so I am putting it on hold.

comment Splitting strings at lower case characters and numbers
A powerful use of regular expressions. Is it possible to write this as a StringExpression? I can't think of a way at the moment.

I left a useless Pattern and rule in my example in the comment; I removed these now.
