I've removed the "word cloud" from factseek.org This cloud is biased by the words used in searches at the very time we've launched it. The problem is that search engines use this cloud, and generate hits that go to this cloud  again. This assigns  too large weighs to the existing  words in the cloud.  Also, people use this cloud to add hits for he words that are already in the cloud. So, it is hard to find any new words in the cloud. Need  a smarter algorithm.

Another problem with the feature (for now) is that, as long as the number of users remains low, it poses a privacy issue.
