This user is from nl : http://toolserver.org/~vvv/sulutil.php?user=Michiel1972

The copyvio is unclear for me (laws are *generally* in the DP and the
database *seems* to come from Belgian laws). Moreover, on nl.wikipedia
the articles are still there :

But the bad points is that the imports were not clean at all :
- not in French
- the template were semi-empty and come a little bit from nowhere
is pretty new)
- there was nothing on http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Projet:MH
