It's a small point, but my memories of the 70s and 80s are that it was always frerred to as the Baader-Meinhof Gang (which fits with its gangsterish tendencies) rather than Group (and never referred to itself as either). Pachyderm 05:51, 20 August 2007 (EDT)
- Tabloid news papers did indeed use Baader-Meinhof-Bande, especially in the beginning, while quality newspapers preferred Gruppe. Later they were called RAF, there "official" name. Order 08:24, 20 August 2007 (EDT)
- Fair enough, Order, and thanks. My knowledge of it was solely from British sources. Pachyderm 08:42, 20 August 2007 (EDT)

This is unsubstantiated: The source - jewishpress - explicitly states that Mahler's carrier is unique, so not many members became Neo-Nazi, but a single one.
