Wikipedia Adds No Follow to Links
I think it's great that Wikipedia exists and asks one to be a critical reader. But I wonder if that requirement keeps it from being a true 'encyclopedia.'
Most people think of encyclopedia as being one of the most authoritative references around. Your point, I think, is that Wikipedia is unabashedly not authoritative. So, sure, Wikipedia is a collection of articles on a wide variety of topics, but does that really make it an encyclopedia? Couldn't it avoid a lot of confusion simply by calling itself something else?
