Subject: RE: BS: Wicked Impediment on WikiPedia?!
There are six (6) basic problems with using the Internet, uncritically, as the source for data:

1. Typos. They can change meanings or render meanings meaningless.
2. Accidental or deliberate errors of fact.
3. Opinion expressed as fact.
4. Out of date information.
5. Bias.
6. Deliberate fraud.
