Copyright issue[edit]

I rewrote the article from a NPOV (Revision as of 07:51, 17 June 2012) and was wondering if there would be any objection to rolling back the article to that date as a (new) starting point. As far as I can tell, there had been no copyright issues flagged up until that point in time. Regards Aloha27 (talk) 07:29, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

That revision appears to be a near-verbatim copy of http://inslocumswake.com/rnsys/. e.g. "The first clubhouse was built in 1860, the same year the then Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII visited Halifax.". Unless there's evidence that the copy happened in the other direction, I wouldn't be comfortable with that. Pburka (talk) 12:36, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
I've searched the internet wayback machine, which has no record of the "inslocumswake" page. I'm wondering if, as you suggest, the copy happened in the other direction? I'll slug back through the page history of this article and see if I can find when the offending entry/entries were submitted here. Regards Aloha27 (talk) 11:22, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
