Online open text encyclopedia, the quality of whose articles varies widely because the quality of the contributors varies widely. A large number of its two hundred billion trillion articles consist of recycled news releases, wishful thinking masquerading as fact, axe-grinding, and hobbyhorse-riding. On the other hand, some sections include many articles written by people who know what they're talking about.
If you like an encyclopedia which provides hundreds of articles about Canadian television shows, you'll love Wikipedia!

Wikipedia is the academic equivalent of asking your friend or a group of your friends for information on a subject. Sometimes you get really smart insightful intelligent answers and sometimes you get complete garbage.
Simulation of asking wikipedia/a friend a question:

Hey, who was Robert Murdoch anyway?
Oh, hes that guy that owns Fox News and burger king or something in Australia I think. He was on the simpsons that time, remember?

A free encyclopedia where average people can make an account and rant with false information about people or things that they hate, and naive Americans will pass it as truth because they're too lazy to look for a more reliable source.
"I learned on Wikipedia that Austin Winkler of the rock band Hinder was gay! Wikipedia is a reliable source, so it must be true!"

"My school has an article on Wikipedia. It's North Adams High School, located in Seaman, Ohio. The principal is Mr. Waffle and the vice principal is Mr. Horny."

"According the the intellectual source of Wikipedia, Adolf Hitler died by being attacked by a bear. I always thought it was something along the lines of committing suicide while in hiding, but who am I to criticize the wisdom of Wikipedia?"

"You get what you pay for."

A nice try by self absorbed kids that truly believe if it isn't ancient history, about yu gi ho cards, garage bands they heard of, or their high school records, it doesn't belong in Wiki.
Wikipedia wants to delet Hanukkah Harry next! A 16yr appointed to editor 2 weeks ago old deleted Jewsmas. Shame of WikiRacists!
