Wikipedia is a collaboratively edited, multilingual, free Internet encyclopedia.

I feel as though I might have learned more from wikipedia than I did in years and years of public school. To be fair, I have a sneaking suspicion that many of my teachers were drunk most of the time, but that's to be expected growing up in the midwest. But need information on the civil war for a term paper? Wikipedia. Need to know how to dispose of a body? Wikipedia.

That being said, it's also a website where anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject.

Joke's on you, LoveHorses235. Wikipedia is all user create content, most of which was submitted by drunk public school teachers.

We used to have these things called Encyclopedias, where you could flip through and learn facts about the world. They were heavy, they took up a lot of room, and they needed updating far too often to commit to buying a set, but we still all had a set in our houses... even if it was missing book #10 Garrison - Halibut. Some people even paid payments to have these books.

Now we have wikipedia. It's easily edited by any rando on the internet and we all take it as the word of God...

I'm pretty sure you still can't cite it on a research paper for school, but maybe that has changed?

Whenever I am looking for information, the first thing I do is go on the Internet and look at Wikipedia to see if there is some information posted on it. The website gives
a lot of useful information on almost any topic in almost 52 languages. However, the content on Wikipedia is all user created and anyone can edit or add some information to any topic they like so I always have to be very careful in using this type of information as a reference in my research papers or assignments due to authenticity.

its a good site of source of knowledge but not sure that the content is all good not bad because the content is uploaded by public and changed by public.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

One of the very few politics sites on the internet that is truly unbiased and is not pushing neither a right or a left-wing agenda.

Born as a clickbait, arbitrage website completely devoid of any substance or content - it somehow took that concept and made it worse.

The Huffington Post

by tvanstee

A heavily biased so-called "news" resource - HuffPo is hypocritical in nearly every possible aspect. It preaches equality and diversity, and yet it's boardroom is nearly completely composed of white women. It claims to be strongly for diversity, and yet it practices no diversity of thought whatso...
