If you are going to offer a site that bills itself as the "worlds most advanced online blog" then you should at least try to get things closer to right.
Lee and weather helm really do not have anything to do with the helm type, but with the tendancy of the boat to turn to windward or leeward. A boat with weather helm mans that the boat wants to turn to weather and a boat with lee helm wants to turn to leeward. The use of the word 'Helm' in the description means that it requires steering input to offset those tendancies.
