• 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."

    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.

    So I have a gmail account that I mostly use for gaming, and I have had a couple of random spam messages in the past. However, this time there was one that was very strange and is giving me anxiety. I received an email from something called Widmer Informatik, or something claiming to be that. It was in all German, but when translated it said, "We will get back to you on your claim as soon as possible." It looked like someone had used this email as a reference for whatever they were to get back to me. There is a name, but it isn t mine or anywhere close, and my email isn t one that can be the result of a typo. I reported it as spam and phishing but should I actually just delete my account since I ve gotten spam on it before?
