The internet is becoming a wonderful resource for fiction and stories, but as a credible source of information it is quickly unbecoming.
Personally, I have avoided wikipedia for about a year now because of revisionist history - it seems as though there are those from outside the United States who would prefer manipulating the public consciousness and this wikipedia is one tool they leverage to that end.
On numerous occasions, I have attempted to make edits - and quickly get someone from India who's banning my edits.
There's no real recourse against this, and these 'power users' - so rather than even mess with it or worry about it anymore, I view it as but one perspective of many, and in this case, a limited and wholly inaccurate view of the world.
Wikipedia is in a tough position. It's confronted with alternate realities directly, and manipulation accordingly - and some of us are simply not wanting to contribute or 'play this game' any longer because there's so many people convinced multiple realities is a theory to pick and choose from.
What would be cool is if there was an alternate version of wikipedia for every reality.
Boy i cannot wait for the flames from the misfiring neurons who don't understand this and call me crazy for the way I see the world!!
