    2002 Worlds was in Japan after 2002 Olympics where Yagudin won his 4th World title. Plushenko did not go. The incident you were talking about was in Vancouver 2001 Worlds if I remembered correctly.

    In Yagudin vs. Plushenko era, Yagudin was notably politically incorrect image. The only thing I could recall about Plushenko during that era was when a journalist asked young Plushenko what he has learned from Yagudin, Plushenko said, "Nothing!"

    I'll just put this here:

    in·fa·mous adjective \ˈin-fə-məs\ : well-known for being bad : known for evil acts or crimes

    : causing people to think you are bad or evil

    Full Definition of INFAMOUS
    1: having a reputation of the worst kind : notoriously evil <an infamous traitor>
    2: causing or bringing infamy : disgraceful <an infamous crime>
    3: convicted of an offense bringing infamy


    from Merriam Webster

    I only meant to say big mouth and bad boy images.

    As of what Michelle Kwan has said, I believe not many top skaters could pass this kind of screening.
