Luckily, you're both right. Not fact-checking is wrong (sources are
generally cited, making it ridiculously easy) -- but so is mindlessly
complaining about reliability (when in reality, the content is pretty
good, and easily checked, and editable when it is wrong, and you
shouldn't be citing it for most purposes anyways).

In either case, you're of course invited to become an editor, if you
haven't already: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Login/signup
