Links to the encyclopedia's articles are used in news articles on this server. That would not be anything strange if the encyclopedia wasn't named "Wiki". Even that would not be so strange. But it is not a wiki at all. Users and/or readers of this server cannot edit it. It looks like the name was not chosen after a generic word "wiki" but  "Wikipedia". I consider this as a misuse of the Wikipedia trade mark.

WMF's part in it?
