Had a plagiarised would-be-article in the moderation queue today - happens all the time - and it's rejected. Fine.

So the OP posts another, and this time it's all code, which is a lot harder to find the source of, and thus prove it's copied.
But...there's no formatting, and it "smells" like plagiarism.

But how to find the source?
Turned out to be easy: just look at the poster's other input to the site. His one and only message is just "Thank you!" on an article from 2006...and the code is identical to that he posted... D'Oh! | :doh:

And we can't even blame lead in petrol making kids stooopid any more... Laugh | :laugh:
You looking for sympathy?
You'll find it in the dictionary, between sympathomimetic and sympatric
(Page 1788, if it helps)
