To keep the order of the terms I suggest to clarify the definition:
%N A050267 Primes or negative values of primes in sequence b(n) =
47*n^2-1701*n+10181, n >= 0.
%C A050267 Terms are listed in the order of appearance in sequence b.
The comment is not really necessary, but may help to explain why the
terms are not sorted in ascending order.
