Re: Persistent errors on Wikipedia

Dear All, 

Allow me to comment briefly in my capacity as H-Net's current Vice President of Networks. Some academic groups do sponsor "Fix Wikipedia" events that aim at correcting such errors and otherwise improving what is, for better or worse, the most widely used reference source on the planet. In addition to the problems of misinformation referenced above, another is that a corrected Wikipedia entry can always be re-edited to reintroduce the original misinformation.
