Wikipedia is NOT Your Personal Blog


Sybelle Foxcroft, Briony Luttig Wolf and Celia Athumani of CEE4Life, seem to think that Wikipedia is one of their slag blogs where they can post poorly informed opinions, unverifiable musings, and outright lies aimed at harassing me. I know they follow this blog religiously so I decided to take this opportunity to point out some important FACTS about Wikipedia.

1. According to Wikipedia...

"Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia, written collaboratively by the people who use it."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Introduction

2. According to Wikipedia, an encyclopedia is...

"...reference work or compendium providing summaries of information from either all branches of knowledge or from a particular field or discipline." 

In addition..."encyclopedia articles focus on factual information concerning the subject named in the article’s title."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Encyclopedia

3. According to Wikipedia, "factual" is...(now this is an important one)

"A fact is a statement that is consistent with reality or can be proven with evidence. The usual test for a statement of fact is verifiability — that is, whether it can be demonstrated to correspond to experience."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fact

4. When making an edit to Wikipedia, instructions state...

"If you wish to add new facts, please try to provide references so they may be verified, or suggest them on the article's discussion page."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Introduction

5. Wikipedia, in relation to "references" and "verified", states...

"One of the key policies of Wikipedia is that all article content has to be verifiable. This means that a reliable source must be able to support the material. All quotations, any material whose verifiability has been challenged or is likely to be challenged and contentious material, whether negative, positive, or neutral, about living persons, must include an inline citation to a source that directly supports the material."
