What in the hell are you talking about? I never said it could be changed willy nilly, I said there is no controlling authority. Many of the articles are little more the reprints of other articles created specifically to get points and bias across.<quoted text>
These are not the early days of Wikipedia. It cannot be changed willynilly the way it was in the past.
Yes, it still has errors, but it actually has less errors than other encyclopedias. In fact in a study done in 2005 it was found to be about as accurate as the Encyclopedia Brittanica. They both had about the same number and seriousness of errors in the group of articles that were checked.
Wikipedia is not an authority, it is a starting place for reference.
