I love Wikipedia.org

I believe in truth, justice and the American way. I also believe in Wikipedia. Where else would I get the information I need at my fingertips? You can't take everything written there as gospel, but it's a good start.

I also believe in sourcing. Giving credit where credit is due. I do not believe in waving your opinions around wildly. I believe in facts. Just the facts, ma'am, as Joe Friday said. If you want to tell me something is going on tell me: where you heard about it, and what exactly was said, written or established. If you tell me you read about the results of an opinion poll done by The New York Times, that's fine. If you tell me about the results of an opinion poll done by Fox News, that's fine too, as long as I know that it comes from Fox News.

I don't want your unvarnished opinions without facts. I can rant all by myself.

I find your website to be a breath of fresh air. Keep up the original thought. Wikipedia is an amazing resource site. I wish I had it when I was in school.
