On November 14, 2006 Carol claimed her first baby weighed 11 pounds. Topper then claimed that he passed a kidney stone the size of a small horse that went on to win the Kentucky derby. Are we running out of original ideas? http://www.dilbert.com/2006-11-14
"It is the reader's responsibility to check these sources, since Wikipedia only brings together information already available elsewhere. If you read something on Wikipedia and there is no source cited, or if the cited source does not verify the information given, or if the source cannot be considered reliable, don't trust the information! Anyone could have added it."
OF COURSE NOT, it is responsibility of the EDITOR.
Wikipedia is weird, sometimes they allow unverifiable information but other times its deleted at whim even if you put some trusty source. So, its easy to piss off real collaborator (mainly scholars, teacher and such), lefting only a bunch of fanboys to manage wikipedia as their personal lair.
