Thread Name: Wow! Read This About Wikipedia
Subject: RE: Wow! Read This About Wikipedia
Well, I have to say that this quote is a relief to people who operate services like Mudcat:It's from the same article at I suppose one could say that inaccuracy is one of the unfortunate side effects of free speech. I disagree with those who make scathing comments about the supposed inaccuracy of Wikipedia. I've found a lot of valuable information there - but considering the source, I do my best to double-check it. Much of the inaccurate information in Wikipedia is very easy to detect. It just doesn't make sense.
And, just as at Mudcat, the credible information is the stuff that's documented.
