Telling people what Wikipedia is and what it prohibits doesn't really constitute a mandate for the ACL Wiki. We're not the UN-Wikipedia.

True. I've deleted the paragraph about Wikipedia. When we first started the ACL Wiki, there was some debate about whether it was necessary to have a wiki dedicated to computational linguistics, given that Wikipedia has several articles on computational linguistics. The paragraph about Wikipedia was written to address this issue. But I agree that it is no longer an issue.
