The "harm" is that you are doing it for LINKS ..not for the betterment of Wiki results..
If you are adding some quality information to the page then they will get more information, making it better. he link is a plus, if it stays on.
Looks good now but in 2 months everyone will be #*$!ing about it.. you watch
Im sure in 2 months time it will be full of links, but then again it will have more information and more links to where we will find more information...
wowo I spent x amount of time on stuffing wiki with my links when I could have spent the time gettting quality links type stuff
Well, I think a wiki like IS a quality link. Think about it ok it might not be the best... But it will be on topic, some people read the wiki information and they might click through to find your information.
As long as people add more useful information to it im sure it will help people. Im not saying go ahead spammers: spam but I dont think '2 months' later it will be gone.
stuffing wiki with my links
Im sure some people do that, but as long as they add information the site should stay useful.

After reading some of the posts here (and getting a nice PM), I went to some wiki pages that relate to my niche. I added links to pages on my site that offered further information. It didn't seem like spamming to me.
Google has indexed some of those pages in a matter of days, and nobody on the wiki site has seen fit to remove the link, which tells me "it's a good thing."

The Wiki spamming thing has been going on for awhile now. I wouldn't get too upset about it being discussed in a public forum. Just a sign that like other methods of site promotion, it's reaching critical mass.
