I do not consider these discussions representative in how Wikipedians
see the work of the commercial search engines and their impact in how
Wikipedia developed. There has been great collaboration in many

I am quite worried about the lack of facts in those speculation that
usually lead to "Wikipedia vs. Yahoo/Google/whatever".
