The Wikipedia link spam blacklist is public, for you, me, and any search engine reps to study at their leisure.
I love it! Off to set up a mechanical turk campaign to get my competition on that list! Not really.
My point is that the W seems to be getting a bit full of themselves. Kind of reminds me of the drunk guy that played high school football with the current sheriff: "don't you know who I am? I'll have your job!"

Wikipedia has to protect itself from link spammers just like any other usre contributed site. I doubt that any relevant search engine would penalize a site only because its domain matches a pattern on that list.
Btw. limoshawn, you didn't say where that original citation comes from. It is part of a warning template customarily given to wikipedia editor accounts found to be spamming. Have you been caught? ;)

@bird I found the comment on a talk page of a page relevant to a niche I'm working on while researching a domain I am in the process of purchasing. The domain had been cited as a reference and then removed by an editor with the warning. Personally I'd rather outrank wpedia than be linked to from them!
