It's amazing that there are people (the 1,000-edit group) who spend hours every day working on this site for no money or recognition.

I don't see the point of having an encyclopedic site from which people actually draw information that has no control or restrictions over its content - without edition or control, the site becomes unreliable and hence entirely useless.

Wikipedia generally blows my mind. I can't even begin to decide how I feel about it. I'll find an amazingly thorough and expert biography of a musician next to a craptastic bio of a senator next to an inaccurate description of a serious disease. Hopeless.

The article says "others believe that it goes against the egalitarian ideals of Wikipedia and places too much control in the hands of a select few." So you'd rather read false information than have some sort of peer review process in place?
