It's not constant, it's only been for the past couple of days. And it's
not "Wikipedia" that's doing the criticizing, since that would run afoul
of NPOV, it's just a couple of Wikipedians. So the real question is
"should some Wikipedians occasionally criticize other sites?"
My position is, why not? Seems like a reasonable human activity.
Sometimes criticism is valuable, and sometimes it is deserved. Heck,
we've got a list somewhere on Wikipedia itself (in the Wikipedia
namespace mind you) where we keep a big list of errors Britannica has
made that Wikipedia has corrected.
This seems like a rather minor thing to be getting worked up over.
