[CeBIT] About "Beutelratten"

Two years ago I wondered how one could translate the german (exhibition) idiom Beutelratte.

I must confess, that I forgot the suggestions I got. Sorry.

But thanks to the daughter of the developer representing Scribus here at CeBIT we have a nice sign for them:

No Beutelratten please!

Update: Kevin Mark informed me that the term pack rat is often used at US tradeshows for thise kind of people picking up everything.
