I like Wikipedia. I don't use it for medical diagnosis or doctoral dissertations. I use it for entertainment (with a little education thrown in). So I was happy to see say,
"A 2005 study by the journal Nature found Wikipedia roughly as accurate as the Encyclopedia Britannica, and a 2008 study in the journal Reference Services Review pegged Wikipedia's accuracy rate at 80 percent compared to 95-96 percent among other sources — not bad for a free, crowd-sourced encyclopedia."
So keep in mind, on the posts in which I cite wikipedia, I'm 80% accurate.
