Because IP addresses, dug up from two years ago, are soooo reliable? I support Wikipedia, have argued for it in my college courses, but I have to take offense with this jab at the edits. If "perceived experts" can make changes to their field of "expertise", then someone from the HoR should be able to make edits to an article they probably have a bit more information on than a bunch of people who read only biased news on the Internet. Wikipedia, wanting to be taken as credible, will have to deal with these edits, or deny the ability for anyone involved in "the field of X" from editing entries on the "subject of X".
