• Is being different from the norm and being made fun of something to be ashamed of?

    Best answer: No, if your different from the norm because you do immoral things like rape your cat or some **** that’s fucked yo but not because your an outcast. What great man (or women) wasn’t in atleast a few ways an outcast?

  • Why do people keep on conflating Wikipedia leaking information about people in the DNC party, with Russia "hacking" the elections?

    As you know, Wikileaks leaked information about Hillary Clinton and other members of the DNC. Apparently, this means that Russia "hacked" the elections, as reported by various liberal media outlets. How on earth does Wikileaks leaking info about the DNC mean that Russia is "hacking" the elections? Wikileaks is a WHISTLEBLOWER organisation, who have been around since 2006. Hence, leaking information is what they do. IN FACT, Wikileaks has never had to retract a single article...so if they do leak info about people in the DNC, then it means that people in the DNC have done something wrong, and should be called up on it. What the hell has this all got to do with Putin? How the hell is this "election hacking"? I think many people here need to pull their heads in, and try some critical thinking for once.

  • Why do my teachers say Wikipedia is an unreliable source when it is a reliable source?

    Best answer: Because ANYBODY can edit Wikipedia pages, for example I could change the article on the Solar System to say "The Solar System is just over eight miles wide and contains fifty-thousand planets, each one is inhabited by a difference species of sentient rabbit." Even excluding such obvious vandalism, many... show more
    Best answer: Because ANYBODY can edit Wikipedia pages, for example I could change the article on the Solar System to say "The Solar System is just over eight miles wide and contains fifty-thousand planets, each one is inhabited by a difference species of sentient rabbit."

    Even excluding such obvious vandalism, many people edit Wikipeida pages to support their own opinions or interpretations of the facts - rather than presenting an objective view. For example, look at the Talk Pages and Edit History for the articles on Northern Ireland, the American Civil War or Same-sex marriage.

    Even the Wikimedia Foundation (the operators of Wikipedia) admit that Wikipedia isn't a reliable source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_is_not_a_reliable_source

    It can be a useful place to FIND reliable sources however, by following the references in each article.

    I edited a Wikipedia article of a summer camp that I went to and under list of alumni I put ppl like Albert Einstein, myself with the caption “memelord”, and queen Elizabeth 2. But the edits were deleted almost immediately and the page got locked down for 2 days because of “vandalism” it’s making me question whether or not that was an okay thing to do or not. Anyone want to weigh in on this? And please, no hate. I posted this an hour ago and had people calling me bad names and such. Just give well-intentioned advice

  • Is Wikipedia A Legitimate Source of Information?

    Best answer: Yes, for the most part. They've had problems in the past with people updating their own page or something politically sensitive with slanted info or outright lies. They've taken steps to prevent this, but even so, 99.9% of their content is not personally or politically sensitive. If you're doing a... show more
    Best answer: Yes, for the most part. They've had problems in the past with people updating their own page or something politically sensitive with slanted info or outright lies. They've taken steps to prevent this, but even so, 99.9% of their content is not personally or politically sensitive.

    If you're doing a research paper for school, Wikipedia is like the old print encyclopedia, not the ultimate info source but a place to begin. If you really want to know about something in depth, Wikipedia will get you started with good basic info, and a list of references to chase to get more info if you want it. We didn't have Wikipedia when I was in school, but I'm surprised to see that many teachers won't allow students to use Wikipedia as a reference. I think this is because they don't want kids just looking up the Wikipedia article and paraphrasing it and there's their report. They want students to learn to use reference materials, to look stuff up, to have many sources. That doesn't mean they can't USE Wikipedia, only that they can't just stop there.

    I just need your opinions. I tend to check almost always Wikipedia for anything, especially current events—buildings recently been under construction, bombings, death of famous people etc. However, I suspect the validity and reliance of Wikipedia as a source of knowledge since it allows users to edit anything freely. Britannica, in my opinion, deserves much more respect.

    I notice that Wikipedia has a pop-up box when I go to its site and the box says that Wikipedia needs money to keep going as an information website. But when I did a bit of research online about it, I find articles saying that Wikipedia does not need money because it is a wealthy "company" so -to-speak,. Is someone running a scam? Should I donate to help their costs, or will they manage without donations and someone somewhere is trying to cleverly get people's money?
