Now i am not sure why that simple statement was hard for you to understand and I do believe you deliberately misinterpreted it because you could not argue with what I said so you pretended I said something else, but like always i will not fall for your terrible attempt to put me on an argument I never made. You really need go back to coulter's class on how to rgue with people who arwe right when you know you are totally wrong.
    I'm not arguing.

    Re: "coulter class", I never knew they had classes on the coulter. Are you a farmer ?

    It's called attack the message not the messenger.
    You want to know my contributions? Check my post history. Since i utterly destroyed you on the whole "the left supported Hitler" nonsense, I figured you just would have left well enough alone.

    As an infrequent user, Wikipedia is very useful, but the fact that it is so easy to manipulate it makes it at the same time questionable.

    Nonetheless, it's good to see that they have made an attempt to clean it up a bit. I think it is a terrific idea, but seems ripe for abuse in this age of spin by the government and media.

    Wikipedia has been on the job trying to solve the problem of no-nothings writing articles or editing articles from day one. But there aren't enough people with the knowledge to review each contribution edit made. They have to rely of individuals like you and I to spot the misinformation that has been published on the Wiki.

    At least today which wasn't the norm 12 years ago you are suppose to be able to go to the bottom of the article and see what were the sources with a link if it came from the Internet. But how accurate are the sources ?

    One of the biggest problem Wiki has are their contributors in the political category. When you go to the talk pages where the contributors talk with each other some times it looks like Debatepolitics.com. Going as far as flaming and the vast majority of the contributors are openly liberal and extremely bias. Very few would be considered to be "politicos."

    In the history category you'll find revisionist and political correctness. But that has become the norm now days, it's what taught in our schools and universities today.

    But probably one of the best improvements on Wiki was the "Wiki Project Council." Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Directory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    But still there's not enough experts to review even a small portion of what's on the Wiki.

    A brick layer shouldn't be editing an article on electrical wiring.

    When I'm lazy or in a hurry I'll use Wiki. But I never consider it to be a reliable source for accuracy.

    But I believe in twenty or so years from now, it will be a reliable source.

    Arguing isn't considered to be debating.

    Post #943 -> http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1062449041

    You never went to the link. If you looked at the right of the page you would have seen Germany's Nazis influence with in America's labor unions during the 1930's and 40's.

    Would you have excepted Wikipedia as a reliable source ?
