"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
Isn't "Crack Whores Gone Wild" kind of redundant?Oh, and gay is spelled G-H-E-Y.Kids today.
There are two flaws in that diagram:1.) No mention of spam content.2.) The use of the word "village". I don't think we have any.
Funny, but I had just been mentioning to my wife the other day that Wikipedia has actually started to become a go-to reference source, lately. It's tons better than it was even two years ago, by a factor of about 500. Still, all of my graduate school syllabi lately include the directive with regard to papers: "Scholarly sources only. Wikipedia articles may NOT be used."
I find it handy for online citations, only after I check what I'm linking there and know on my own that it's correct.One thing remarkable to me -- which I only discovered the other day -- is that it does not permit posting of original research. That strikes me as profoundly ridiculous.I oughta bash off a note to Jimbo, since I knew him back when he was just a Usenet kook like me, and before all these damned brats started clogging up the 'net.
I admit it - I use Wikipedia. That said, I only use it as a starting point for finding actual, trustworthy sources... or for information that is so commonplace that it is as good a source as any (like, say, who wrote the first Twilight Zone shows... and I feel so dumb for having to look that up). All that aside, that graphic is as accurate as any :).
