Here's another good one with "secret sources."  All you tag haters, I
warn you, I've added fact requested tags to the unreferenced
secrets--actually should be removed, probably, on legal grounds, that
we shouldn't be publically speculating about other people's secrets
without references, or for some other reason that the inclusioin of
unreferenced secrets mind boggling fails to allow to make sense.


If you want to know some secrets, read this.  But don't ask how
Wikipedia knows these secrets, because that's really a secret.
