Why is everybody so down on Wikipedia?

If you don't agree with what is being said you can edit, as long as you can back up your proof.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

As long as you realize how wiki works its a great tool. All information sources are subject to poor edits ...now the process just moves faster. It's like TV or radio news ...don't believe it all and "if it sounds off....it probably is "
