Comment: Wikipedia

(See in situ)


is fine as a quick, cursory reference.

In fact my understanding is the majority of Wikipedia is edited by a dedicated team of people.

What I think you SHOULD have said is don't treat Wikipedia as an authority on facts.

Again, as a cursory reference it's great. If something doesn't quite seem accurate that's when you go to actual encyclopedias or other more suitable sources for authoritative accuracy.
