This debate did NOT need to appear. Nevertheless, I can't leave it without mentioning that I've never found Wikipedia to be anything but reliable. I don't know why people insist so vehemently that it isn't.
Zeker, I think most people call it obsolete cause of one simple fact: EVERYONE can edit it. I mean EVERYONE. they can put any old false information, cause there is no clearance needed. I dont do this, In fact I try to correct it. one example is that my friend edited a wiki page about benjamin banneker, and he typed in he was gay ._.
Yeah, but information never stays that way. The vandalism is quickly reverted by an army on blood-thirsty admins.
