I know this may not belong on instructables, but I like how diverse the culture of people here is. There are people on here with doctorates, and some without high school degrees and so it is one of the best places to ask peoples opinion on the following subject.
Is Wikipedia a reliable source? I have always loved and cherished Wikipedia, and throughout my life used it for all but school projects. It incorporates proper information with the social accepted alternates too. I have never found a piece of bad info, and the people on here recommend it all the time to me on other questions.
My teachers always claim it is a bad source, but that is like saying apples are poisonous without even trying one, or at least doing some research. Who came up with this preposterous idea that a information source run by the community with constant additions every day is unreliable. Wikipedia is the only site that is updated at least yearly on almost every page if not more often. I have done many projects over the years and I have never used a non-wiki source that was updated at least a year prior.
Why would you wan't to surf across many sites to find bits from each when you can find a good, accessible site with it all mixed into one?
I do understand you can change information to preposterous things, but someone will quickly report it and it will be turned back right? I have tried a few times and actually failed to make changes, but for this question I will try again, and see what results I get.
