I do not agree. They are not confused by other languages, they treat all 
languages as born equal. Do not forget, mathematics is the common source 
of knowledge for all programmers, creating our separate source of 
knowledge leads to isolationism and narrow-minded vision. If my words 
are too vague — "catamorphism" and "F-algebra" belong to mathematics, 
not to Haskell.

Maybe Wikipedia articles are bad because they are provided by community 
— then HaskellWiki will suffer likewise. :(
