Copyright concerns[edit]

Hello, User:Bwmoll3. I had blocked you for ongoing copyright concerns after the issues discovered on June 19th and the subsequent question raised with regards to Desperate Journey. I apologize - the block was a mistake. I did not realize until after it was done that the content was added to the article prior to the opening of the CCI. At this point, we tend not to block for errors that predate the opening of these investigations.

The point of confusion here, of course, is that content unfortunately did enter United States Air Force Plant 6. It may be that a block is necessary as we do not know if that particular article is an exception, but I should not have done it based on Desperate Journey. I realize that you have announced your intention to retire. The purpose of the block would simply be to make sure that if you choose to return we are in position to be certain that the issues that led to the CCI have been addressed. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 13:32, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Okay, I have investigated more recent contributions and have confirmed that copying continued after the opening of your CCI. One example of copying is this:
Source Article
The year 1932 saw another major change. Almost no new facilities had been constructed since the end of World War I and “temporary” buildings were still in use. Now, the Great Depression was underway, resulting in even greater 121 Forgotten Air Pioneers cuts in military funding for both the Army and the Navy. Yet the attempt to get the unemployed back to work led to expenditures for new public works projects, which, much to the chagrin of the Navy, resulted in $1.6 million being appropriated for new construction at Rockwell Field of buildings previously planned for 1928 but stymied by the Navy, including ten homes for officers, thirty homes for noncommissioned officers, new sewer, water, and gas systems, roads, walks and other modernizing improvements—hardly indicative of a prospective departure by the Army. The year 1932 saw another major change. Almost no new facilities had been constructed since the end of World War I and the "temporary" wooden buildings were still in use. Now, the Great Depression was underway and an attempt to get the unemployed back to work led to expenditures for new public works projects, which, much to the chagrin of the Navy, resulted in $1.6 million being appropriated for new construction at Rockwell Field (Most of which today remains as part of a National Historic District).
That's only one example. The duplication detector shows liberal copy-pasting from that article, written by a retired attorney.
