ROFLMAO! I will whole heartly support you!
May I share this with my English lit class?

As I am preparing my lesson plans for my classes this semester I can't help but reflect on how this topic has evolved from, "Don't copy word-for-word from the book because its called plagiarism" to now having to have students submit their research papers electronically so that we can run through a program to determine what has been plagiarized off the web. I now spend a week in the fall teaching both my English and History students the proper way to conduct research. 
Plagiarism and "grey area sources" isn't new and isn't limited to the SCA. I do wish however their was, and I know I said it before but I will say it again, a Kingdoms Wide consensus on what the judges and Laurels require for research. It would make many of us breath easier when presenting a topic we are passionate about. 
Especially, when presenting new information that may contradict previously dearly held on beliefs.

ooooOOOOOOoooooo......this gives me a great idea for submission
requirements at our next event:

Seek Thou the Pen of Fili-Pum Poo, and stretch thy hand into the Abyss of
Mooing, and there, obtain the Scratch Pad of Thought, and Impress thy
documentation unto these pages, and obtain the verification of the
Cantankerous Witch of the Tollbooth on I-75; From There, you must Slay the
Dragon of Waga Waga Waga, and fashion a stamp out of its Hide, and Place
thy Publication into the Federal Mail Box.

Or you could just make it a scavenger hunt, and send them to various
members of the Barony....
