The thing I like about Wikipedia is first off I know the man that is the founder.<quoted text>
Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not an acceptable citation
Some people distrust Wikipedia because anyone can edit it.
Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia compiled by a distributed network of volunteers, has often come under attack by academics as being shoddy and full of inaccuracies.
Secondly, All the info on Wiki must have a "verifiability" (Wiki word). Which means all info must include a source that is to be listed.
So anytime anyone has a problem with Wiki just track down the source of the info. If the info is not correct you can submit a claim against it provided you have info more weighed.
