GUEST,Phil d'Conch Key folk figures absent from Wikipedia? (124* d) RE: Key folk figures absent from Wikipedia? 30 Mar 21

I've often found my right to do something exceeds my ability to do same rightly.

“Mr. Wales* said that he gets about 10 e-mail messages a week from students who complain that Wikipedia has gotten them into academic hot water.

“They say, “Please help me. I got an F** on my paper because I cited Wikipedia” and the information turned out to be wrong, he says. But he said he has no sympathy for their plight, noting that he thinks to himself: “For God sake, you’re in college; don’t cite the encyclopedia.””
*Founder Jimmy Wales. **Bad

Wikipedia:Academic use - First sentence: Wikipedia is not a reliable source for academic writing or research.

That's just for correctness. Complete, finished, all-inclusive &c &c aren't even up for discussion.
