I complained about this several YEARS ago. Amazing lack of references. Still not repaired.

Apparently Orthodox Christians are not required to cite anything other than the Bible:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Lent

You see any cites in there? I don't.
Mostly the work of one editor. An obvious sockpuppet account. You will find that name in the histories of dozens of articles relating to Orthodoxy. Don't need no stinking references.

Shown exactly as it appeared in List of YouTubers, one of the tackiest "information turds" on WP. Such great and valuable content!!

Yes kids, that's right: WikiNerds created an article for every one of those usually-pathetic "YouTube Celebrities". They could have done more legitimately useful content, but instead dozens of people wrote an article about Magibon. It was the subject of some of the stupidest editwarring I've ever seen; at one point it was 13k bytes long.

And let's consider this charming Commons photo, used in a disgusting Gizmodo article about the FBI abusing its powers. What happened to Swartz was an outrage, but why is he being canonized? And why is the Wikimedia Foundation helping? Oh, well, of course they canonize their "heroes". Next they'll be trying to get a 150-foot marble statue of Jimbo Wales in a toga erected on the Washington Mall. "Et tu Brute" and all that. Hah.

A prominent avant-garde composer died the other day and Wikipoo has failed to notice.
I have not mentioned the name because I want to see how long it takes the fuckers to deal with it.
About 48 hours and counting.

god the autism:

The length doubled in November because a movie came out. And squabbling ensued.

A classic bit of Wiki-autism. Doesn't look paid edited because most of it was churned out by random IP addresses, a sure sign of fanboy crap.

Badly written, badly sourced, linking to nonexistent articles. Since there are so many "weeaboos" on Wikipedia I have to assume they don't like to talk about Japan's less wholesome aspects.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_nationalism

See the talkpage. One of the article's major editors early on; the redoubtable Charles Matthews. I've given up keeping track of the many fuckups and coverups Matthews has been involved with. He merged something else into it in April 2005--what a fucking mess. Is he an actual "expert" on Japanese history? 14 years later it's still not very readable or complete.

As above, the usual garbage. What "citations"?

Almost entirely the work of a mechanical creature who has a rigid vagina for obscure musicians, he cranks out little squibs that no one notices

From a private email exchange:

That's a problem right there, because the ARRL is opposed to any sort of encoding (beyond Morse Code and the digital low-power systems like PSK31) because ham radio is supposed to be a public service. There was already a huge fight over the D-STAR transceiving system (originated in Japan by Japanese amateurs in the 1990s, and picked up by Yaesu, then Icom) - you can't tune in a D-STAR repeater or "net" without having the equipment. You have to play by the ARRL's rules, which means that certain things that are common on VoIP or business band two-way cannot be done in HamLand.

Which makes the ARRL a "non governmental organization" that essentially makes laws for amateur radio. They are "extrajudicial" and not actually responsible to the public--just to hams. And even that is getting more and more questionable as their internal politics become increasingly rotten and petty....I must have said this before, but it just keeps getting a little worse, incrementally.

They have always resisted real change and have usually discouraged technological development since the 1980s. In recent years it's been undeniable.

Check the WP coverage. It started out very bland and you can see evidence of League supporters removing "unpleasant facts". Yet in the last few years the "Controversies" section has been growing.

This dude is very questionable.

Not that anyone cares, of course.
