I think this is a fantastic article about the things Wikipedia really does for us that we don’t really look into. There are a lot of things these editors don’t get credit for since everybody believes “anyone can edit these articles” but I don’t think people really notice just how quickly those anonymous comments are deleted and edited back. Wikipedia has bad “PR” if you will because people do not seem to recognize just how accurate most of the information is.

I love this article. As a blogger, you get used to hearing such stupid and pointless comments that don’t back up a thought you spent a ridiculous amount of time writing and trying to use. I’ll write an article about how a certain football player is better than another, back it up with multiple stats, reasons and other things to prove my point and in return I get a “this is wrong” or even better “you are stupid”. It’s annoying. Usually though, I ignore those comments because I figure its just trolls. Most responses on my blog are well thought out and I respond to those. Ones with just annoying little one liners I tend to just close my eyes to.
