    Andy, are these guys for real? The going to hand edite 35 million URLs with a description? Please give me a break. I am contibuting now to AboutUs and it is a night mare with all the flasg sites and unobtrusive JavaScript DOMs that kill the search engine robots.

    As a Wikipedian to 5 WikiMEida projects I would runway from the “List” wiki…

      Jimbo, my brain must be dead..:) But if a link passes WikiPedia Spam patrolmen, counter vandalism unit, and the anti Spam bots, how can it be Spam??? But we will always love Jason…the search world is big! We even love Evil Google and Dr. Evil Matt Cutts.
