Hate to criticize, Learn Together, but this entire article was a pretty much straight word-for-word copy from the article on Front Page Magazine. According to the first rule of CP, wouldn't that mean that this isn't your own work?

Actually, Learn just added wikilinks and categories and stuff, from what I see. According to the history, the edits before that were Ed's work. And while it's kinda lame that the major part of the article is simply a quote, it's okay to, well, quote him, I guess. --Jenkins 14:45, 18 January 2008 (EST)
Yeah, I was just the last person to touch the article, the "clean up guy" so to speak. ;-) Generally speaking things should be put in our own words unless directly quoted and attributed. I've seen it done this way before, so I'm not sure if our rules are being broken here, but User_talk:Philip_J._Rayment would be the person to drop a line to if you wish to get a more detailed opinion.

Thanks for the info, should have looked more closely before mentioning it :--) --Jdellaro 14:51, 18 January 2008 (EST)
