thank you for this

Someone at work said they noted a drop in new articles being published. The tongue in cheek implication being all the world's knowledge (worth knowing) is about to be finished documenting.

My big issue with Wikipedia for the past few years though is the self appointed guardians who feel its their right to control certain pages. I've had this happen on at least four occasions where the contribution I made was quickly removed and the page reverted back, even after citing credible sources.

But..its good. Its a good place to find references but one must be careful and do you own research on anything. At least libraries don't have to put up with their Encyclopedias being stolen.

It also brings to mind the interest and excitement the French caused after the revolution when they took up the original Encyclopdie.
