Its always hard to say anything bad about humour
established wikipedians create, but buying a domain and making a
straight redirect without prior authorisation from the non-profit
foundation is pretty clear.
Other sites have to ask permission to link to us, now?
There is a pretty big difference between linking to us and using a
redirection service and enwiki to store your website.
I'm not so sure. Would it be different if, instead of an instantaneous
redirect, their URL led to a page with the text "click here for the main
page on Wikipedia?" They're simply automating the process of clicking, IMO.
And how about tinyurl.com? I'm sure there are thousands of links to
Wikipedia that come in via tinyurl redirects.
As long as the page that's on Wikipedia is compliant with the
requirements to allow that page to stay on Wikipedia - and since this
Bathrobe page has been through MfD and survived, it appears that this is
the case - why should we care _how_ people get there?
