Personally I don't have a dog in this fight, but on this point
I am bound to note that [[Illegal number]] is essentially
solidly referenced and perfectly neutral in its representation
of the facts, while being IMO of a sufficient generality to not
be susceptible to at least the accusation of being of questionable
educational merit.

It doesn't carry any of the numbers themselves -- though
[[Illegal prime]] in contrast does show two of the primes in
full. Both numbers however benefit from a definite lack of
recentistic problem, and nearly certainly aren't being
spammed, due to their age.
