That would have been Jimbo. We thought it would be a good idea. I also
think we should specify on each page the name "Wikipedia" and the fact
that it's an encyclopedia. We might do this on a new logo.
Jimbo, would there be a way to prevent that statement from appearing on

I don't like it either, but I don't know how else, short of hacking
