I meant the suggestion in terms of reputability. I don't think we're
seen as having a neo-conservative agenda. But I think we're about as
trusted by a lot of people. In fact, I know we are. Five minutes ago,
sitting in my office, I heard another TA tell a student not to use
Wikipedia as a source because "anyone can edit it" so it must not be
reliable. She looked to me for affirmation, and I said that, actually,
it's very reliable and that false information gets removed quickly. She
wasn't convinced, and told the student not to use it anyway.
We can't afford to knowingly post false information. Too many people
think we do it already.

Does anyone else find this a deeply disturbing suggestion? I for one
would disassociate myself from this undertaking sooner rather than
later if I thought this assertion was true. Can Mr Sandifer cite any
evidence to support this exceedingly provocative statement?
