What do you like or dislike about Wikipedia?

Absolutely never!!! We use credible websites when needed.
My feelings exactly.
My DSs 5th grade teacher had them using Wikipedia for research, and I wrote her an email, lol. I'm not sure she knew how unreliable it can be.
Sometimes if I use bing to find something simple out, Wikipedia pops up and I might read it quickly to get an answer...but never for school or other important things.
Absolutely not. It is not a reliable source of information.

For quick blurbs of info, sure. No biggie. Want to find info about a tv show or something? Wiki it.
For real research, absolutely not!
This is us too!

No, I don't consider it all that reliable, and it's a little dry and boring anyway.[/
My kids and I DO google things, like if we don't understand the math the way it's being taught, we will google it or something..
We do the same thing!

I have used Wikipedia before. It's a decent reference.
