“Probably the most important site on the internet”

Ginny D.
1/25/21

It is said that the universe is expanding at 150,000 mph. I'm not sure if even God knows. But on Earth, as we witness the miracle of the technology revolution, none of us can be masters of our universe and that's where Wikipedia plays an invaluable role. This online encyclopedia is in itself an expanding universe of almost anything you need to know and the "go to" place for everyone. It's so amazing that your knowledge about anything will expand faster than what would have been possible without it. If you're a parent with young children, this site must be bookmarked. In fact, if you're still alive, this should be bookmarked. The nice thing about Wikipedia is that it is neutral, can be edited by anyone, tends to be highly accurate since changes to content undergo the scrutiny of contributing editors, and is an ongoing self-sustaining body of thought. It's rich in inter-wiki links which will enhance your original search by providing links to critical elements. Your destination starts in one place and depending upon how curious you are, takes you to places you didn't intend to go or knew existed. So, while most people think in terms of the present, Wikipedia provides you with enough information to think way beyond the beyond and envision what the future beholds. Check it out and just add the magic word "wiki" to your internet search.

“Nothing but a far left tool”

I used to think Wikipedia was an alright organization. Not any more since their left side writing on former president Trump. Clearly they are using their organization to push a political view instead of providing true facts and only facts. What a crock this organization truly is. Thankfully, i don't have to use their service since there is still free choice at least for now.

When I started to write about myself on Oct 16th and it was under draft until Liz sent me a message saying to remove the promotional material part so I did and then Athaenara all of a sudden deleted without explanation! So I had to start all over again and received a message from Nearlyevil665 saying it was not accepted. This doesn't make sense because I am an actor and everyone out there deserves to know about me, life. History and how I became successful in acting.

In what right mind someone would let a page exist when the majority of people can change the FACTS with lies?! Can someone explain this? I will never open wiki$#*!ia again, at least not for history articles. I guess even Adolf Hitler can be a saint in the eyes of the majority if they try to change the article. This page has to come down. It's filled with lies and incorrect information.

They lie, don't read politics or history. They turn all upside down. They embellish war criminals! They lie about World War 2. It's half truth, half lie so it would look like truth.
Don't read them. There are unprofessional people who write the articles. I once helped them with 20 pounds so they told me that now I can write any article I wish! So it's not about professionalism but as always about money!

Wikipedia is the number one search result on google for almost anything, that gives it a lot of power. Sadly, power corrupts and despite their best intention, it has become a mouthpiece for propaganda. And not just political propaganda either. Virtually every topic has its own petty bias, with page editors getting to be the ultimate authority in their chosen domain. Sure, all the media is biased these days in one way or another, it's just that Wikipedia used to be different. Now it's just another place to be misinformed. Remember: ultimately google tells you what to believe these days. If you're stupid you keep bucking the system, talking to people directly and forming your own opinions. If you're wise to it all, you just play along. Swallow your propaganda pills and don't make a fuss. For heavens sake, don't rock the boat. You'll upset Miss Google and she gets very, very angry.

Tip for consumers:
Just another place to hear peoples opinions

Firstly, Wikipedia has a lot of sources that are not factual, this is why students are not allowed to use it for research papers. Secondly, most of what you read is edited by immature ignorant jerks. And the guidelines don't get me started with the guidelines. I wish I can give it a -1 out of 5, but oh well.

Tip for consumers:
Do not be a Wikipedia editor. It’s not worth it. Go outside and spend time with family and friends. Life is short.

Internet users who want to publish useful words on Wikipedia are often Discriminated by Google. The Reason is that Wikipedia is from Google, this company does have a lot of interest/greed to control what users can see and what not even if it does have important words, for example useful words like [seodiscrimination] or [Negative Seo] will be blocked by the owners/administrators that does work on Wikipedia platform.
We did try to publish the word Seodiscrimination on Wikipedia, (see images)
Direct after publishing comes an owner/administrator from Wikipedia and does do Down Vote/Disapproved that word. (in a few minutes they do without to analyze if it is a useful word for internet users on the world wide web) and a moment later after doing that this administrator/fake account who did do that bad thing, will be removed/disappear on wikipedia, so that it does not any more exist, this way the users can not contact that administrator and ask them why they do that without any reason.(see images)

Why is the word Seodiscrimination so useful?

Seodiscrimination is a very useful word for all internet users, that will explain in a single/one word,
What the effect is because of Negative Seo, Ad Fraud, Click Fraud, Ranking Fraud, Scam Companies/Websites and many more.

We did also make an important website for all internet users, seodiscrimination dot com but google & Adwords now called Google Ads, does do everything to not to rank this site even if we do or best to have quality backlinks with quality articles pointed to this Landing Page.

I have recently looked up several different topics. Unfortunately, Wikipedia is not a factual, reliable source. This is why schools will not allow students to use wikipedia.

You will be lucky to find an IP address that is unblocked. It's gotten to the point where even someone like Andrew Yang or Mayor Pete is now politically considered to be on the hard right. That is all.

They claim it's the encyclopedia anyone can edit, but Wikipedia does have a policy of banning users based solely on sexual orientation. Wikipedia has also removed my edits when I've tried to add useful links or correct the disinformation that dominates some pages, and Wikipedia banned my IP address when I complained. In my experience, Wikipedia is run by arrogant, immature jerks using silly pseudonyms while pretending they're heroes for poorly running a website full of biased articles while claiming to be neutral. Information on Wikipedia is not a reliable - that's according to Wikipedia, not just me. And it seems that Wikipedia is begging for money every other month. The begging messages are becoming more and more obtrusive. I won't donate, and I feel that Wikipedia is in decline because they drive away editors and there are good alternatives now. I've noticed an increasing number of articles with obsolete information on Wikipedia. What's truly sad is that many kids and some adults might actually believe that the completely biased articles on Wikipedia are neutral and factual. You could end up regretting ever supporting Wikipedia just like I do. Some people don't know that Wikipedia founder Jimbo Wales got his start by peddling pornography, which doesn't offend me but seems hypocritical when he only supports freedom for some. Jimmy Wales has also made fun of college students who cite Wikipedia. It had potential, but I've long ago given up on the idea of it being anything other than a den of disinformation ruled by power-hungry snowflakes.

It contains lot of factually/technically incompetent, biased and erroneous information. On technical subjects it's usually incomplete of just plain wrong. On non-technical subjects it's so socially and politically biased that it's almost humorous, if it weren't so sad. I call it the world's greatest source of uninformed, incorrect and biased information.

If you like false information. So called facts the are easily disproved, and mass political narrative propaganda stories. If you are extremely uneducated. Then wikipedia is for you.

Tip for consumers:
Get an education, or use factual information sites. Fox, OAN, encyclopedia. Mainstream media sites are heavily political influenced. They state false information regularly

Products used:
None. It's a fake news site

So after an extensive research panel and a wide variety of evidence compiled we found that Wikipedia only provides subjective point of view and NOT neutral facts.
Here for your review thank you Wikipedia for being so easy to prove how wrong you are.
Enjoy

The media, social media, government and now Wikipedia are truly shameless in their attempt to control the minds thus actions of Americans. If people don't wise up to these tactics and think logically for themselves, FREE of the influence of their television, our right to do such things as write a review like this will be taken from us before we know it. How on earth a human being has no regard for their personal freedom is mind blowing. How someone could possibly believe that a government they have never met and do not personally know has their best interests at heart AND that the government should be allowed to enact laws that dictate their life is foolishness to the highest degree. The idea that one person should be able to silence another because they don't like what's being said in the antithesis of freedom? This cancerous belief that more laws will banish hatred, racism, and usher in peace is. The laws will work to bring silence as they are intended, and that silence will be of ALL people. It will be of EVERYONES freedom and EVERYONES right to free speech. The arrogance of Americans that support this ideology to aggressively "silence the haters" or anyone with "potentially harmful information" (ie: anyone that disagrees with them) has blinded them to the fact that they are willingly being controlled by a movement/ideology of lies. They can't see that the goal is to ultimately control them JUST AS MUCH as those the ideology has fueled them to hate, silence and seek to punish. In the name of peace, love, and justice... right?
We should all stand and fight for the freedoms of one another. Stop being so thin skinned because someone doesn't like what you do, how you live, dress, or think. Racism, hatred, and lies are unfortunate evils that have been around forever. Removing one's right to choose them does not eradicate these evils. It merely enslaves us all to the grandiose ideology that a government of mere men and woman will somehow not be ruled by selfishness or greed as they dictate to us our rights and promise to "take care of us."
I would hope that every American would first remember that men and women died to protect our right to choose to hate one another, choose to love one another, choose to do what's right or choose to do what's wrong. Do I like it when someone chooses to hate me because of the color of my skin. Or chooses to hate me because of my personal beliefs? Or for no reason at all? No. However I'm so very thankful for their freedom to CHOOSE.
"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." -John Acton
The crucial choice for all Americans is to choose to support freedom for All and to protect All freedom of speech. Otherwise we will ALL soon find ourselves without it and by the time that happens it will be to late. Under the guise of peace and love someone absolutely corrupt will have all the power to enforce what they Choose upon us.

My edit was reverted by a moderator for "vandalism" even though I cited a source then when I brought this up with her I got a warning for no reason! I'm done with Wikipedia and their power trip moderators! Never again.

Also I hate Wikipedia's interface it's old and it's like a Windows 95 application, it's a complete pain to do edits. It's in serious need of modernization.

Well known resource for basically any task you may have to it. If you need some information which needs immediate details along with facts, please disclose them all entirely. I assume it have good solid reviews cause there is big reason for that.

Q&A (5)

Answer:

That's how they are. They call everything they don't like "vandalism." They called it vandalism when I wrote on my own user page about how I disagreed with decisions that were made. I guess this is an old post, but it still matters, and they haven't changed at Wikipedia in any way that I'm aware of.
