Bad fish, bad Wikipedia

I use Wikipedia quite a bit, mainly for getting public domain images for classroom PowerPoint lectures. I occasionally run across vandalism, such as this:

bad_fish.jpg

That is the entire article on “Fish.” I guess that is what you get when you have a “free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.”

Ninety percent of the time, Wikipedia is pretty good, but I look forward to whatever eventually replaces “Wikipedia” as a better, massive online source of information.

Grace and Peace
