@r0semarysays Your run-of-the-mill encyclopedia editor isn't having to spend minutes, hours, and days arguing with and reverting the work of idiots, so no, there is no way that their articles would go through "this kind" of editing.
If you think the English Wikipedia has only 750,000 articles, then you haven't been paying attention the past few years.
@barnhouse: German studies of Wikipedia's accuracy typically look at the German Wikipedia, not the English Wikipedia. The German Wikipedia is substantially more accurate than the English Wikipedia, because Jimmy Wales isn't fluent in German. (That may sound facetious, but really, it is the root of the matter.)
There were many words tossed about in this opinionated essay, but I'm afraid you've spectacularly missed the actual understanding with which an intelligent person should emerge after examining what's going on at Wikipedia, and rejecting it.
