  My email to SlimVirgin - The Wikipedia Review
I don't understand why you're linking to that Guardian piece though, the case described there is really very dissimilar to any potential case you would be making (I am presuming of course that you plan to sue the Foundation for whatever cause of action you choose, and not the individual users who wrote your article).
In both cases, any evidence that Wikimedia Foundation is designed to, or in a position to, moderate content, and is aware of content that has legal implications, argues against the Foundation's presumption that it is a mere uninvolved service provider.
This is exactly what the Wikimedia Foundation feels that I should be doing, because its position is that all editors are responsible for their own edits.

A piece of software that has been created and designed to complete certain minor but repetitive tasks automatically and on-command; often used to search large amounts of data for certain patterns and return a list of results.
This is one of the important mechanisms to ensure that the global aims of the Wikimedia Foundation are supported and maintained, i.e., making information freely available that is based on a neutral point of view.
An organization to coordinate all of the various projects does exist in the form of the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), which is the owner of the servers that host the Wikimedia projects.

 Help:HTML in wikitext - Meta
Note that in most cases, one can use a more descriptive tag, for instance, to indicate an important piece of text, or (subject to the same things as strong) to indicate an emphasized piece of text.
This not only draws the user's attention to the text, but can also alert those who are using nonvisual browsers or have sight impairments, etc. to the fact that that is emphasized text.
They can be used in conjunction with stylesheets to give a piece of text a descriptive class (or unique identifier) and to refer to that in a stylesheet.

Wikimedia Commons - works by Joseph Mallord William Turner
Wikimedia Commons is a central repository for free images, music, sound & video clips run by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation.
I am unable to offer legal advice on copyright issues, but from the Wikimedia Commons FAQ it seems clear that personal or educational use should be fine as long as the source is credited (I recommend crediting both Wikimedia Commons and the source indicated on the image information page).
