Who We Are[edit]

Our visions and missions are simple.

Frankly, we are a Search and Destroy group. We sift through the miles and miles of Wikis to find articles that are in direct violation of a copyright. We are the snitches and narcs of Wikipedia; our reason for existing is to sniff out plagerized and content that hasn't been permitted by the holder of the copyright.

Our members[edit]

To join, all one must do is list their name (and optionally, kill count) here. Please add your name at the bottom.

  1. Linuxbeak; 20 articles tagged
  2. Idont Havaname; I don't tag articles. I just rewrite them right away to save other people some trouble. (I only did that on the first few that I caught. Note that after Angela's message, which she posted in June 2005, I started tagging copyvios in keeping with the instructions at Wikipedia:Copyright violations. --Idont Havaname 02:33, 24 October 2005 (UTC))
    ::Please don't. That only means the violation is kept in the page history. If the article is new, it is best to list it for deletion and rewrite it on a temporary page that can be moved there after the history is removed. Angela.
    :::Ok. I tagged five articles yesterday and today. --Idont Havaname 07:08, 12 July 2005 (UTC)
  3. HopeSeekr of xMule; 10 tagged articles. MSN Search works better than Google because a lot more smaller sites are visited more often, I've found.
  4. Gurubrahma; 5 tagged
  5. Perl
