This site seems quite simply to copy Wikipedia articles (a pet peeve of mine) in order to draw traffic (and sell advertising).

The Wikipedia article appears to have been updated a bit, but basically that's the site's (uncredited) source:

silverstar, wikipedia is a notably dubious source for facts and dates and should always be verified by checking the source of all information posted (if there is one!). I recommend the same for THIS website - do not trust what you read on the internet!

For what it's worth what you do for this forum is no more and a great deal less than what many others do, Jim for one ... if it's not worth your while, then as you say, why bother.
