Hut, I believe a simple diff comparison of the material that I have added to this article since March 2010 will show that there is no surviving material added to this article by the WP copyright violator in question. Virtually 100% of this current article is text added by me. Good luck with resolving your bigger copyright problems created by this character. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 22:22, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
There was some surviving material when I blanked it. Compare your version to Darius Dhlomo's:
  • Darius: After being favored to win the 200-meter butterfly as a member of the 1980 US Olympic Team, Beardsley lost his opportunity due to the boycott of the Moscow Games. You: After being favored to win the 200-meter butterfly as a member of the ill-fated 1980 U.S. Olympic Team, Beardsley lost his opportunity to compete in the Olympics because of the U.S. boycott of the Moscow Summer Olympic Games.
  • Darius: Beardsley took home the gold at the Pan American Games in 1979 and 1983 You: Beardsley took home the gold at the 1979 Pan American Games
  • Darius: also held both the world and the American record for the 200-meter butterfly from 1980 to 1983. You: He held both the world and the American records for the 200-meter butterfly from 1980 to 1983.
When you made your changes to this article, you didn't remove or rewrite the material added by Darius. You added to it significantly, and you made some small changes, but it was still there. I can see that you have now rewritten it properly so further changes aren't required. Hut 8.5 09:58, 25 September 2010 (UTC)
