Change for who?

Can we please stop pretending this is real education? Anyone who doesn't double check an answer they get on a forum deserves to swim back to shore. Wikipedia's "open-source truth" apparently has some people believing that the internet is a good place to find an answer to trust their life with. I'm not saying that Giulietta is 'an ass and full of s#&^' (though some have), but that caution keeps a sailor alive, and should be exercised here, just as anywhere else. There are very good answers on many of the forums here, but there's also a fair amount of BS masquerading as a serious answer (as well as the BS questions). So why ask the people who are at least honest with their BS to change? If the newbies what info, they're called "articles" and there's a link for them right at the top of the frickin' screen! (God, now my blood pressure's up, should've just stayed a voyeur)
Cheers
