what do you think of this excerpt that i read from Sharon Housley's article. "Lets face it, ANYONE can edit Wikipedia. The information read in Wikipedia might be accurate one day and incorrect the next. Wikipedia is a nice resource, but is not a reliable indicator of information. Please do not use links from Wikipedia to indicate a sites worth. Wikipedia uses the same model as Dmoz which has languished, volunteers can only do so much."

i've always used this site.

Hello,

Its a great site I would surely miss. It does'nt matter what you Google you can bet your last penny/cent/euro/ringit Wikipedia will have the imformation you need.

Sharon Housley: I wonder if she could gather half the imformation, documate it half as well, and supply all the free images for EVERY subject that Wikipedia does - I doubt it.

Some people have thought about such a site of imformation but I hav't seen any such attempt to date.

Well done Wikipedia!

It's true. Any one can edit anything lowering the credibility of the information

I don't trust much i read on wikipedia. In fact, The only things on wikipedia i trust are things i already know.

Even the creator of it agrees, Which is why he is creating citzendium.

How can you trust it considering where the information has come from?
It's not a book that has an obligation to print accurate information that has been researched, Anyone can go there and write whatever they like.
