a recursive ripoff of ru.wikipedia.org, with blind search and replace of
all "wiki" into "Encyclo" (in Russian, "w" and "v" map to the same letter),
coining such memes as "Encyclongs", both as people and a NASA space program
consisting of two probes, "Encyclong-1" and "Encyclong-2"; "bolsheEncylo"
(bolsheviks), "Welcome to Encyclopedia - a free encyclopedia" and so on...
Later on, all the fuss turned out to be a clever virus marketing PR...
