Hi, you recently reverted edits I'd made to an article you authored and put a lot of writing work into. I wasn't trying to be a jerk or a vandal, but I did edit or remove content that included no citations to the sources mentioned or claims made. You seem to have reliable sources and are familiar with wiki editing, but I had to dig to find the citations needed just to source the paragraph you added to Beazer Homes USA article...it would take hours to source content on the American Freedom Mortgage, Inc. article. After looking at similar non-sourced contributions you've made to other articles, editors may either just remove/edit your content or tag it for deletion or comment. If I have offended you or overstepped my bounds as a fairly new editor, I really do apologize; I'd be happy to try to help you add reliable references to your content, but I don't want to go dig it up on my own or leave the content as is.

You should be aware that posting material copyrighted by others is a complete violation of policy (see WP:COPYVIO) and also very bad behaviour for a large number of reasons. Other then opening us up to lawsuits, you've also managed to waste an incredible amount of time of other editors. People have spent time working on what you added before it was realised it was copyvio & people have to spend time tracking down your copyvios. Please do not repeat such behaviour in the future.
