Yes, but any actively-maintained article will quickly be corrected by someone who is watching the page.

You can also look at revision histories, so you can see exactly who changed something, when, if it was changed back, if there's an "edit war" between people on the page, etc...

It's not infallible, but for *most* topics, it's actually quite good... Which brings me to...
Exactly. If you're looking at relatively dry and non-controversial topics, Wiki is pretty good.

Did you completely miss the heads of these sites being grilled by congress a few years back?  They're going to avoid that ever happening again by any means necessary.
I liked when on Congressman asked FB how they made any money.  These hearings are pathetic.  They aren't getting grilled.  The heads of these companies do some PR posturing and move on.  It does have the benefit of making Congress look ridiculous though, I'm all for that.

I've been involved loosely in PR efforts by one major corporation and it is rather expertly done with a LOT of money, no holds barred, even if the money technically is completely wasted.

I'm drinking from a magnum of Kirkland Chardonnay, it's not bad, for $8, for a mag.  OK with me.

It's community-contribution and community-edited. Which is good and bad.

In the worst case (controversial topics), it's subject to being hijacked by editors who only allow edits that fit their viewpoint. Which is bad.

Granted, when you're looking at Encyclopedia Brittanica, obviously that's edited likely by folks who only allow information they approve of as well. Which is equally bad, but it's not on the internet so we ignore it.

I stumbled across this. I’m not endorsing it as the gospel or anything but just thought it was interesting.
People cannot be this stupid.

Sigh.  Yes they can...

I suspect only a very small fringe buys into that sort of thing.  They are loud, but not numerous.

Our Founders were not fond of the masses either, which is why they set us up with the Electoral College among other things.

Would if I could.  Was so good, and the day stayed (sort-of) cool enough to justify the dish and the wine!

Super interesting timing on that thread closing.  Sheeeesh.  Just as brazen as the WH itself.
