Nearly every time I hear a complaint about Wikipedia, it's from a person with a rather fringe viewpoint and they are upset it is not supported by
what's considered a rather authoritative source. Everything on Wikipedia is sourced and people are free to check out the individual sources.
Another complaint I hear is from people who try to submit sub-par content and are angry about not fulfilling the requirements. Those people are often
(ironically) the same people who complain about the low standards and "how any random person can change the content".
I'm not saying you are one of those people but it's just normally what I hear. Wikipedia is free and supported by volunteers. That means there may
be some temporarily inaccurate information but, like I said, everything has a source that is annotated at the bottom. If anything looks questionable,
just look at the source content and go from there.
Personally, I think Wikipedia is one of the best things to happen to human society. It's amazing and taken for granted.
