"Wikipedia is the love child of the Encyclopedia Brittanica and ComicCon."

From the comments at Gawker.

Just remember, Roger L. Simon says it best [boldface mine]:

. . . This is disgraceful behavior on the part of Wikipedia, which is demonstrating bias that errs on the side of laughable. But we should be grateful. This censorship reminds us never to trust anyone. [Including this blog?-ed. Definitely.] Especially do not trust those whose expertise pretends to be encyclopedic. No one’s is, not even an organization that pretends to use the wisdom of crowds in the manner of Wikipedia. Too often we reference Wikipedia as if it were authoritative. It isn’t. Not even faintly.

The Internet - a wonder and a curse!
