    Yes, for the most part. There are some "controversial" items that get a bunch of idiots who try to undermine the information that gets posted. This is the reason why SOME people think that the WHOLE DATABASE is "crap". "We will not accept researched informaiton from WIKIPEDIA..." BLAH BLAH BLAH.

    I use Wikipedia EVERY FREAKING DAY because I enjoy learning about ... well ... EVERYTHING. Is it always the most comprehensive and accurate?...not always. The items in contention...are POSTED as having PROBLEMS...so you kind of know where the IDIOTS have been doing stupid things.

    No because everyone can edit it and will be base on their knowledge and not on facts that are proven.

      Incorrect. Anyone can be a contributor to wiki, but you cant just edit stuff on your own. An admin has to review and certify any changes before it hits the system. These admins are volunteers who have specialized experience in that field relative to the post.

    It shouldn't be your only source of information, but it is generally rather reliable. You should cross-reference information.

    It's extremely valuable as a starting point for research. But it isn't worth much as the only source of information.
