As a matter of fact, they knew it was a week's grounding if they used it as a source in a school paper. That may be harsh, but the developer of Wiki himself has publicly asked people NOT to use it as a source because of its unreliabilty. On top of that, many college professors will now flunk a student for doing so.


Javal, if i was your kid id be grounded all the time.....i use Wikipedia for almost everything.....whether im looking up a person or just a subject that im interested in, i sometimes use other sites but thats only if i dont learn what i want to know off of Wikipedia.
