The irrational fear of wikipedia. First brought on in the early to mid 2000's, wikiphobia was demonstrated within numerous high school and college campuses. Fueled by the initial distrust of web-based knowledge, wikiphobia led many innocent students to be robbed of basic yet precious insights into important works of literature, science, philosophy and the arts. Although Wikipedia is known to be an undeniably useful starting point for research in any area, wikiphobia is still a common mental illness. One day scientists will discover the cure for wikiphobia, we can only hope.
