Welcome to Wikipedia. We invite everyone to contribute constructively to our encyclopedia. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing. However, unconstructive edits are considered vandalism. If you continue in this manner you may be blocked from editing without further warning. Please stop, and consider improving rather than damaging the work of others. Thank you. If this is an IP address, and it is shared by multiple users, ignore this warning if you did not make any unconstructive edits. Dylan Lake 18:32, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

After your last edit to Dylan's talk page, you were reported to AIV. I'm not going to block you now, but it would be really helpful if you would tell me where the false information that you added has remained. Wikipedia is a serious project, and there is no good reason to hurt it rather than help it. Academic Challenger 00:40, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm sure it would be immensely helpful to you for me to give you that information. However, I'd like you to prove that I inserted any false information into Wiki at all. Give me proof that I have done such a thing and then I will consider your request legitimized.

Here's the thing about that: You can't prove it. You can't prove it because IPs shift so rapidly that tracing anyone to any one IP is about as effective as matching a suspect to the clothes he was wearing six months ago.

Here's the second thing about that: I'd estimate twenty to fifty percent of the information contained in the Wiki to be at least inaccurate, and ten to thirty to be completely false.

Why is this the case, you ask? Because of people like you. When you edit a page from Wiki, where are you getting this information? From TLC, Discovery or the History Channel? From a professor your were lectured by last week? Your cache of personal opinions? Your imagination?

Wikipedia is simply an aggregiously over-organized version of "I read it on the Internet." It is IMHO one of the most criminal sources of information on the web, simply because it is touted as being strictly policed and fanatically patrolled by it's "user base". It is widely accepted by the common folk as a source of accurate information and is advertised as so by most media outlets.

Simply because the cops in my town are just your average joe doesn't make it any more secure than the next town. In fact, this is how the mafia gets started, politicians become corrupt, and governments oppress their populations.

Wikipedia is the precursor to Orwellian History.
