Anymore, sourcing the NYT is about as credible as sourcing Wikipedia......

I trust Wikipedia very much, that where I get most of my information from.

and that is a problem with Wikipedia. why trust a website where anyone can go in and post any information they see fit? I can go in there and change anything i want to say anything and you'd believe it?



That is why Wiki is not a citable source in schools.

Have you ever tried to do that before? Why do some research when you can just demonstrate your personal ignorance?

If you try to change things arbitrarily, no matter how obscure, your changes will be flagged for review and they will be changed back. If you persist with your vandalism you will get a warning, and a failure to stop will result in a ban. A study published in Nature demonstrated Wikipedia is just about as accurate as encyclopedia Britannica.

But don't let facts get in the way of your narrow-mindedness. It's par for the course with us Clevelanders.

Use Wikipedia as your source for anything meaningful, and you'll get shot down. Wikipedia is good to find sources, but Wikipedia as a Source is a non-starter if you wanna get taken seriously by anyone...

I always thought it was a good way to get started because its crowd sourced so you can change incorrect info and it does usually have a lot of citations but I agree its nothing to cite directly for reseach.

lol narrow-mindedness? LMAO! A "study" yah a study. If so much is accurate then why is there so much miss information on there then.

For example it used to say LF Ventures is based in GA; when if fact LF Ventures is based in Mooresville NC. Then it was changed to Charlotte. which was still wrong. Their offices are and were in Mooresville, NC.

And ya you can be a Clevelander all you want. I'm not.
