Whatever credibility Wikipedia had left may have just evaporated. An article here tells the story of one of Wikipedia’s most prolific contributors and editors, who was supposedly a professor with degrees in theology and canon law, was exposed as a 24-year-old college dropout.
Wikipedia has thousands of contributors, and some people claim the web site is a place to discuss the accuracy of an article and they even go so far as to say the discussion weeds out inaccuracies. Well, if that is the case, why make a pretense of calling it an encyclopedia? Call it a discussion web site, not an encyclopedia.
The Wikipedia chief promises change but will anyone go back and review the 20,000+ entries made by the 24-year-old college dropout masquarading as a professor with degrees in two fields?
