I have dropped a note on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Computing#Knol site infringing on Wikipedia articles about computing, after flagging a few infringing Knol articles to no effect, but I have made no more further contact with Knol as I am not one of the contributors. -84user (talk) 16:21, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
