[WikiEN-l] a valid criticism

I don't agree with much of this critique, and I certainly do not share
the attitude that Wikipedia is better than Britannica merely because it
is free.  It is my intention that we aim at Britannica-or-better
quality, period, free or non-free.  We should strive to be the best.

But the two examples he puts forward are, quite frankly, a horrific
embarassment.  [[Bill Gates]] and [[Jane Fonda]] are nearly unreadable crap.

Why?  What can we do about it?
