Doesn't appear to be nonsense.  Just doing "decades" meaning all but the
last digit are the same for each possible number in the set, just as in year
decades.  This is in contrast to any set of 10 consecutive numbers where the
second-last digit changes at some point.

Reminds me of an argument everyone always has about when the new millenium
starts.  Well technically, every year is the beginning of a new millenium,
but it's not as meaningful to us.

... the entry is either nonsense or mistaken. If the submitter had meant
"start of ten consecutive composites" the sequence should have been

115, 117, 201, 213, 295, 297, 319, 321, 469, 511, 525, 527, 529, 531,
621, 663, 775, 777, 799, 841, 843, 865, 867, 889, 891, 893, 895, 897,
955, 957, 999, 1071, 1073, 1075, 1077, 1131, 1133, 1135, 1137, 1139,

but then the description is, um, a bit twisted. OTOH, if he meant "start of
consecutive composites, starting with n = 1 mod 10" then he missed eg 1141.
I'm willing to resubmit IFF there is interest.
