Wikipedia Tightens the Reins December 6, 2005

Posted by Al in : website , trackback

According to Wired – Wikipedia is about to start trying to regulate the people who are editing it. About time too if you ask me as Wikipedia gets quoted quite regularly in search results for info and is quite often wrong. I’m afraid I believe that a properly compiled encyclopaedia is a far better option than one composed of entries by any idiot with a computer. If we start relying on Wikipedia then we run the risk of assuming that someone else’s entry – possibly completely unverified – is correct. I really think that this is a menace and will gradually fill the internet with false facts that people will not recognise as such. Ban Wikipedia is my idea.
