Please don't start an "Anti-Wikipedia" rant, again. Every time I turn
around, all I hear is Wikipedia is wrong abut this or that. The trick to
research is have more then one resource. If a wiki is your only resource for
your information, it might be a good idea to look for more options to
cross-compare the information. I'm not saying to avoid them like the plague
either. It's all about feasible reality. As they say, "don't put all your
eggs in one basket."
