Last week there was some buzz about Wikipedia containing inaccurate information. It was reported by the news media in a sensational way and it seems that some people took it very seriously. A website was created just for people who want to bitch and moan in the most ludicrous way possible: a class action lawsuit.
It is easy to understand why inaccuracies end up in Wikipedia but complaining about it solves nothing. Not only is it pointless and annoying, but trying to shut the site down by means a class-action lawsuit is like throwing a rock through your own car window because someone wrote, “wash me” on it with their finger. People who complain about inaccuracies in Wikipedia have only themselves to blame.
It takes more time and effort to complain about an error in Wikipedia than it does to correct it.
