A site that sounds and looks good at a first glance. While Wikipedia can be a useful resource for quick research, the community is probably the worst on the net, and actually trying to edit an article will lead to pointless debates about "POV" and "assuming good faith" that make it not even worth it.

Wikipedia is a site:

Where an 18 year old with Asperger's who spends 18 hours a day editing has the same say as a Harvard professor.

Where you'll find pictures of mutilated penises and nude decapitated women galore, but if you create an account with "poop" or "sex" as part of your screenname, you'll be banned for having an "offensive username".

Where 12 year old kids are given admin access, so if a guy with a doctorate in quantum mechanics happens to piss of some 12 year old Pokemon fan with admin powers, he just might get the banhammer.

Where articles on obscure Pokemon characters, individual Family Guy episodes, and Japanese porn cartoons get featured on the homepage, and are more detailed and accurate in content than articles on American history.

Where you can listen to audio articles on "death erection" and "cumshot", but not "World War II" or "Abraham Lincoln".
Wikipedia is like a sausage, you may like the taste of it but you don't necessarily want to see how it's made.

Wikipedia is full of edit wars, elitist admins, and non-peer reviewed information.

A kind of quantum encyclopedia, where genuine data both exists and doesn't exist depending on the precise moment a person relies upon the encyclopedia's discordant fucking mob for information.
Wikipedia is the most useless source of information on the planet - things change every second.

The most biased and inaccurate source of information on Planet Earth. They claim that anyone can edit and contribute but this is not true. Any attempt to add or edit content is removed within 5 minutes by registered douchebag editors with no lives who sit around 24 hours a day, just waiting to delete whatever you might add.
I tried to correct Wikipedia's entry on the Earth by saying that it's round but someone reverted back to say that the Earth is square.

Internet-based free content encyclopedia that provides entries submitted by regular Internet users, thus covering topics and issues more often ignored by the scholarly print-based encyclopedias. Not everything can be submitted, and there are policies and guidelines that must be followed. Is a distant relative to urbandictionary.com in that they are both free content Internet databases.
Wikipedia has an extensive listing of every major Harry Potter character. Even Luna gets a good-sized entry.
