Could the whole site not be a wiki? From a quick scan it seems as if  
the non-wiki parts contain wikish content.

You see I'd say that's borderline tactless again. If you're supposed  
to be in apologising mode a throwaway line like "Merlyn is not  
without his faults, of course, but I won't mention them here." isn't  
especially diplomatic :)

For the record I too am not without my faults - but I won't mention  
them here either.
