Claim of being the source[edit]

David Justin / Dr. David J. Hanson, You have been persistently been spam linking to your sites mainly using sock puppets such as those blocked in this case: Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/David Justin (2nd).

You claim that the page you created on 28-10-05 is based on However, if we examine the page using the Waybackmachine*/ , we find that at February 14 2006, this page does not mention Marie C. Brehm at all.

You appear to have copied the text from Wikipedia more or less verbatim into your own page some time during February 2007 and you are now claiming that your page is the original source!

Did you really think your sleight of hand wouldn’t be found out? It is hardly likely to enhance your reputation as an academic. Wham Bam No Thank You Spam 08:35, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

The source[edit]

Hi Wham- With only the date changed, the observation of respected editor John Broughton says it well:

May I point out that the text that was "copied" into the page was created by User:David Justin on September 10, 2005, and that contributors to Wikipedia retain the copyright over their own contributions. You're not really accusing Dr. Hanson of plagarizing himself, are you? -- John Broughton (♫♫) 14:59, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
