Six Apart: Wiki of Trust topic

Unpolite individuals - or malicious, to be blunt, seem to me little comparison with my recent notice of Google results opening editing pages of wikis. Front Pages, yet!

What do unsuspecting and unfamiliar visitors know of the impact of playing and experimenting with the text areas of wikis with the save and preview buttons introduced by a link from Google?

Perhaps I'm making too much of this. I have only recently discovered it, but I have seen no direct reference to this search engine practice. I fear an increase in interest in wiki due to wililog and bliki type convergence may create a need for dialog boxes and such to protect wikis at the doors.

And I've never encountered a strange blog editing window open in searches? Something wiki needs to import from blogdom?
