Wikipedia? Broke(not financially)?

with 3 comments

You must have come across articles related to the incident in wikipedia and Wikia.
Quoting from another blog,

Wikipedia’s trust issues are in the spotlight once again, with a scandal roiling over the revelation that Essjay, a respected administrator of the site, falsely claimed to be a tenured professor of theology.

And, guess what? The article in question is something like “Catholicism for Dummies“.
What the heck? The whole of wikipedia gets a bad name for something like that? Isn’t that downright silly considering that developing nations like India or Brazil rely on the wikipedia for a host of other non-theological information? I request my fellow countrymen to ignore all this hoopla over nothing and continue to use and contribute to wikipedia. The sight of wikipedia losing to such an pointless issue is not worth seeing.
In the name of anarchy. Hail Wikipedia!

  1. Your posts are really good. I am trying to learn from yours.

    Onething, I am unable to understand: Why there are no comments, when the posts are good?
