Wikipedia list of Spaceman Spiff planets

Wikipedia. 18 page articles on anime that are essentially schoolgirl porn, no biographical page for known mafia leaders, no biographical page for Bob Proctor. And they ask for money.

The statistic on Wikipedia everyone should know is that 90% of the edits are done by the same incestuous and basically up themselves half-smart group of 67 people. Having been to university for multiple degrees myself I totally agree that I too took a major in being up myself. The difference being that I don't inflict that pomposity on people through a structured abuse of knowledge on a virtually constant basis.

Wikipedia is a type of encyclopedia. Do some research, if you don't already know, concerning the revolutionary (literally) origins of dictionaries and encylopedia, and then see how harmless you think the 1984-isation of online knowledge is.

It is an agenda, not an accident, that wikipedia has so many more porn and fantasy entries than actual checkable facts. And as for the facts and the metier applied to so many of the articles... Indescribable.
