Long-time readers of this web site are aware of our low opinion of Wikipedia. It is the largest online encyclopedia and surely the most inaccurate research site on the Internet.
We even created a separate “Wikipedia” category to store several entries about Wikipedia - all of them uncomplimentary.
Here are some of the things about Wikipedia we have written about:
Failure to check facts
Personal political agendas
Lack of objectivity
Material that is completely fabricated
Now comes another Wikipedia exposé from the UK as reported in the Scotsman (see link below).
The Scottish Parent Teacher Council (SPTC) said pupils are turning to websites and internet resources that contain inaccurate or deliberately misleading information before passing it off as their own work.
The group singled out online encyclopedia Wikipedia, which allows entries to be logged or updated by anyone and is not verified by researchers, as the main source of information.
