I'm very interested to know how you all feel (especially older forum members) about the rise of Wikipedia and the subsequent impact on discussions (particularly online, on forums) that it has had.
Did you enjoy discussions prior to this being around more than you do now? Do you think that Wikipedia is a great tool or a cheap shortcut that creates arrogant internet experts?
Would you rather get your information from Wikipedia or by doing broad, proper research from other reputable sources online and subsequently forming that information into your own thoughts/posts?
How does it make you feel when you are trying to have a discussion and someone with no knowledge of a topic quotes Wikipedia at you and then defends that point to the death?
Please feel free to post in this thread regarding anything Wikipedia related, or your responses to any of the questions contained within this post.
