    So..... We were doing research on the apocrypha. We had full access to the interwebs but couldn't use Wikipedia because it's "unreliable". Quote from stupid teacher, "Your Uncle Frank could add anything he wanted to on wikipedia."...

    By the end of the class, he had approved a site called www.kencollins.com among other geocity and angelfire sites.

    </rant>

    Add whatever you want to rant about too! (as long as it's relevant to wikipedia lol)
    If anything wikipedia is the most reliable because anyone can edit it to addd new info, and it get so much traffic that if someone flames its edited right away.

    KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON.

    @mr resi. Exactly my point. Doubters take that the other way though...

    I use Wikipedia more than I should. Most of my lecturers will say it's unreliable. For all its flaws, it's still quite convenient. In my experience, whenever I've used the internet to help me complete a uni assignment, it tends to be good old Wikipedia that turns out to be the best source of information (or at least, the one easiest to understand).



    I never add friend codes.

    The bad part about this attitude that wikipedia is unreliable, is academic's lack of acknowledgement that actual texts may have factual inaccuracies too. For example, "Video games: a popular culture phenomenon" Written by renowned Arthur Asa Berger stated that Pokemon was created in the 1970's. Likewise, an academic book entitled "From Barbie to Mortal Kombat: Gender and Computer Games" didn't actually have a Mortal Kombat character on the cover, but instead a character from virtua fighter.


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    Ha ha, those books don't sound liberal as crap.

    BTW: using MY definition of liberal. As previously discussed, there should be a disclaimer that you might interpret said comment differently than intended.
