Is it just me, or is the ‘Wikipedia isn’t the definitive truth story’ looping?

There’s a strange dejavuiness to this opinion piece in today’s Tennessean about how Wikipedia is not always the accurate source on a topic. It reads like the countless paint-by-numbers columns that have been previously written to beat this dead horse to obliteration. Back when this topic was actually news in Nashville, I posted the advice to “use Wikipedia as a gateway to facts, not a source of them.” For anyone who uses Wikipedia — or the Tennessean, for that matter — I stand by that advice.
