really useful

i think is really good but you have to be careful when looking for something because it's not the most reliable thing out there for info

Wikipedia is a helpful site but it isn't so reliable because anyone can edit the info, but it is good for quick summaries and small scale information!


I agree. In fact trying to become a contributor is a nightmare!

Makes information free (as in beer and as in birds) for the world. A truly excellent project, one of humanity's finest accomplishments on the internet.

i think is good but everyone can write whatever they want so it's not really as realible as i thought

Wikipedia is incredibly useful, but I think it's pushing it to classify the site as "software".


I think is very great but everybody can write of any kind they need so it's not really as reliable as i supposed.

How to report spammer's account HelenSteiner which was, ostensibly, created for the sole purpose of posting that spam link in the remark above?

Regardless of the aspersions cast upon it's ability to remain unbiased, it is like 'Democracy' - even with all it's drawbacks, it's the best thing we've got until a better alternative comes along.

So instead of criticising it, we should work to strengthen it -- both, Wikipedia as well as Democracy!


Wikiepedia is incredibly biased. The original founder said so himself.
