The thing is, it's kind of a crapshoot anyways.  You might see something that 
you think might be classified and report it; but, unless you actually have the 
corresponding clearance yourself, you have no way of knowing for certain 
whether the material is in fact classified in the first place.  Conversely, 
anyone who does have that information is unlikely to confirm it one way or the 
other, for obvious reasons. 

To make things even more convoluted, reporting certain kinds of material to the 
WMF could itself potentially be considered illegal in some circumstances, since 
not everyone at the WMF is considered a "US person" for ITAR purposes.
