Untitled[edit]

Material posted by Neutrality found on [1], with copyright statement of owning organisation here. [[User:Noisy|Noisy | Talk]] 22:16, 7 Oct 2004 (UTC)

An idiotic, offensive, and clearly false accusation. The source is the public domain Library of Congress website: [2]. [[User:Neutrality|Neutrality (talk)]] 00:22, Oct 8, 2004 (UTC)
I have investigated this myself and Neutrality is right. The text is in the public domain. It is from the Library of Congress website link he supplied, under the "Natural Regions" section of the "Geography" section of "Chapter 2 - The Society and Its Environment". Noisy, did you even consider the possibility that the website you are accusing him of plagiarising from ([3]) may have used public domain text itself? Anyhow, the accusation you have made is incorrect, and while I'm sure it's nothing more than an honest mistake on your part, I believe you owe Neutrality an apology. blankfaze | (беседа!) 01:51, 8 Oct 2004 (UTC)
In any case, this is still a matter of the content being copied verbatim, without even citing the source. The Library asks this and even offers their preferred citation format (which I added). Citing sources you use as reference is already policy, but to not do it when you copy and paste full text into an article is poor judgement. -- Netoholic @ 22:09, 2004 Oct 8 (UTC)


Map[edit]

A controversy has erupted over the choice of map for this article. The two candidates are shown here, along with any others that other Wikipedians may choose to enter. Feel free to make any comments. The lower map may also appear in the corresponding Geography article for this country. Kelisi 02:36, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)
