I wager people can't always spot rubbish, particularly in subjects 
they're not familiar with, or when the rubbish is well written -- or 
both.  Remember James Frey?  Great, but totally bogus writing.

I too think wikipedia's quite brilliant, but when I'm looking for 
information outside my space of knowledge, I admit to trepidation, and  
check other sources.
