Works just about as well as the supposed factual content of Blog-O- Pedia.

What's the problem?

Prior to the changes, you could put your topic in the search box & various relevancies would be found.

Now zilch

No problem here.

I find Wiki is good for a first look at a subject, but in many cases one must dig deeper to verify its content.

Mostly I use it to refresh my memory about history I know or find out preliminary stuff about things I don't. As Q said, 'one must dig deeper to verify its content.'
