Evil though this seemed on first sight, I think there may be a
[fairly] innocent explanation. That site *does* carry a mirror of
Wikipedia content, but not at that location - click "Encyclopedia" at
the bottom; ok, so it's on a different domain, but maybe they just
reorganised and didn't bother with redirects, so something's out of
date somewhere? (Note also that *anything* after the /MV1/ will bring
up that same page)

What were you searching *for* when you turned this up? Asking Google
turned up nothing linking to such an address, so I don't quite
understand why Google would think it existed.
