You're absolutely right about this, Al. The distinction you've 
highlighted makes me realise I have never read the Ubuntu Team wiki 
(wiki.ubuntu.com);  but I do look things up on 
<help.ubuntu.com/community/UserDocumentation>, which the 'HowToGetHelp' 
page describes as the 'Ubuntu community documentation wiki', though 
'wiki' does not appear in its URL.

All very confusing, as you say;  and I wonder if many of us have made 
this mistake when responding to the poll?
