On Incompetent "Wikipedia Cops"

The Chronicle of Higher Education recently published an interesting article on some of the things that are wrong with Wikipedia's policy of gate-keepers and the "undue weight policy."

Judgment is required, because sometimes (actually not infrequently) the majority is just wrong. That should be obvious![1]
