Hi James I often suspect copy-paste and find exact matches of the text elsewhere. However, whereas one can painstakingly (unless there is a trick that I am not aware of) ascertain when text was enetered into an article, it is not always possible to know when the other text first appeared on the internet to know for sure who coppied who. From my limited knowledge, I believe that some trace of the date of upload must be retained somewhere in the code - will this bot be able to pick up on that and provide a date?
Thanks and congratulations to all involved and for sharing.
