Because no-one reads the footer (or we wouldn't have so many people
surprised we're a charity). Hardly anyone reads the sidebar, but at
least it's there. We changed the link on en:wp from "Contact us" to
"Contact Wikipedia" to make it clear we weren't talking about how to
contact the article subject ...

We could put an email link to info at wikimedia.org in the footer. Shall
we do so? Superfluous?
