Re: Wikipedia, an increasingly valuable (and correct) online source for information #general
It is indeed a wonderful resource. But its free edit function means that it hastoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
to be used with the thought that vandalism might strike at any moment, usually
corrected. Nevertheless it is pasted from, bodily on websites which are reliable
and are not freely editable because of the wealth of accurate information as
most contributers (I have been a Planet contributer on it, partially overruled
but leaving my mark.) Wikipedia even feels confident enough of a lot of its
material that it now has downloading >from its site based on material it has out.
My Planet influence is in there too. In short its good but as we say in English
bring along your grain of salt. That's good advice in life altogether but on a
freely editable site which can be vandalized even for a moment it is extraly
needed. It has good references to link to which is great. It contains topics you
won't find so easily if at all anywhere else but I thought I just should remind
people that it needs to be used with more caution than a nonfreely editable site.
