Who We Are
Our visions and missions are simple.
Frankly, we are a Search and Destroy group. We sift through the miles and miles of Wikis to find articles that are in direct violation of a copyright. We are the snitches and narcs of Wikipedia; our reason for existing is to sniff out plagerized and content that hasn't been permitted by the holder of the copyright.
To join, all one must do is list their name (and optionally, kill count) here. Please add your name at the bottom.

I don't tag articles. I just rewrite them right away to save other people some trouble.(I only did that on the first few that I caught. Note that after Angela's message, which she posted in June 2005, I started tagging copyvios in keeping with the instructions at Wikipedia:Copyright violations. --Idont Havaname 02:33, 24 October 2005 (UTC))
::Please don't. That only means the violation is kept in the page history. If the article is new, it is best to list it for deletion and rewrite it on a temporary page that can be moved there after the history is removed. Angela.
:::Ok. I tagged five articles yesterday and today. --Idont Havaname 07:08, 12 July 2005 (UTC)
