I brought this from Wikipedia, where I wrote the bulk of it. I am now trying to rescue the parts that were deleted, damaged or pushed aside by the teaming masses. So please spare it from the ax for now until I can get it into better shape. Contributions welcome, too! Pat Palmer 20:29, 21 May 2007 (CDT)

I have now changed it significantly. It should no longer be flagged as identical to Wikipedia. Pat Palmer 21:39, 24 May 2007 (CDT)
Flagging WP credit applies not only in the case of "identical" articles. Any article that bears edits by Wikipedians other than the CZ author/importer should be flagged, according to GFDL. Now, I find some WP-identical text (48 sentences). If you are able to declare this is entirely your work (since, e.g. you imported a "proper" version of your own from WP -- or whatever), then it is not flagged. Otherwise, we should check the box :-) Aleksander Stos 11:17, 9 August 2007 (CDT)
Aleksander, I did write this entire article. I copied it from Wikipedia because someone kept removing and replacing the entire introductory part (and what they replaced it with was less helpful, in my opinion).Pat Palmer 17:02, 14 August 2007 (CDT)
