Ban Me



I think it's pretty obvious why Middlebury College banned Wikipedia.

Also, what's with including "Ann Arbor" in the citation? Last time I checked, Wikipedia loads the same around here as it does anywhere else in the world (China and Iran excluded).

I also like how wikipedia is spelled "wikipeida" at one point and was accessed in the year 200 as well.

There are four sources cited with three different ways of citing them. F for effort, F for execution.

And Wikipedia makes it so easy for you to at least get the citation right:

Spanish Civil War. (2007, February 21). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 23:40, February 22, 2007, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Spanish_Civil_War&oldid=109824195

Seriously, I took an online class in high school and many of our assigned readings were from Wikipedia.

I'm impressed they failed so miserably. I mean, as dexter crowley pointed out, wikipedia will automatically format each entry into a citation in every style known to man.

Come on, guys, let's get real here.

I mean, who actually reads BOOKS anymore? Or looks up words in actual DICTIONARIES?

Sheesh, get with the times!

I know people who use Wikipedia to study for their finals. God forbid they should open a textbook!
