Thread Name: Editing Wikipedia
Subject: RE: BS: Editing Wikipedia
I got an award from Wiki for sorting out John Lennon's family tree - proving that all the authors who had written about him had not done their research! I also got abuse from some because I had proved them wrong.
I certainly wouldn't believe all that is written on Wiki - just look at the Spancil Hill page and you will see that it doesn't make sense - anyone can put up anything they like as long as nobody challenges it.
BTW I have to smile when it's obvious that "celebrities" have put up pages on themselves - they always knock a couple of years off their age.
