Bah, I find all those grammar and factual errors to be part of Wiki's charm, as far as I'm concerned it should get worse, not better.

I'm for it, but if we correct it I couldn't laugh at those who believe what is written there to be truth :scratch:

Don't worry, there will always be more BS on wiki to fix and some 'tard will keep on de-correcting it :lol:

The inherent problem with Wikipedia is that anyone can edit it.

Stupid anyone, editing all the stuff that's right and not making it right anymore.

I know what you mean about the ignorance of Wikipedia users. Li'l Chris' (remember him?) article stated quite clearly that he was a "whiny little shit" for weeks (something that can clearly been proven with facts and empirical evidence) until someone complained that this was completely inaccurate. Which is just ludicrous really; anyone with a shred of intelligence can see that Li'l Chris is indeed a whiny little shit.

Anyways, I would edit wikipedia myself but seeing as I have trouble editing cereals and milk together to form an edible breakfast I'll console myself with Wikigroaning (look it up, it's fun) instead.

Found this today. That's what he gets for using wikipedia instead of being a proper journalist and doing proper reasearch. :lol:

We've been told that if we ever cite Wikipedia as a source in an essay we'll get an automatic 0...

My Drama teacher in particular is very skeptical about Wikipedia, and we often argue with him about it, it's so annoying >>

If he's so damn sceptical about it, tell him to get off his arse and contribute instead of pissing and moaning.
